About

Publishing for creativity and inclusion.

Welcome! I'm Audrey Podmore, music teacher, composer and facilitator. I launched this site, in September 2002 to support all kinds of creative and inclusive music-making. At that time online music publishing was in it's infancy! Now, in 2016, the scene has changed beyond recognition and I need t find new ways to relate with visitors and make resources available. It's a very daunting task for one person, with so much material to share! Please do contact me with any comments, ideas or questions you may have. Contact

You can also link to me on Facebook, Twitter or WordPress


Creativity

On this site, you will find many resources to support creativity:

  • improvisation ideas for many of our sheet-music pieces
     
  • interactive  software, packed with creative ideas
     
  • creative classroom projects for key stages 1-3
     
  • Kids' Pages of creative activities and Kids' Guide to site
     
  • inspirational articles by creative musicians
     
  • links to other places online which support a creative approach


Inclusion

We support inclusion by:

  • making easy music available, including much for absolute beginners
     
  • publishing flexible music for mixed instruments and abilities
     
  • providing online playback for large sections of our catalogue
     
  • publishing 'framework' software with "widening access" options
     
  • offering a customisation service for our sheet music and software
     
  • articles supporting inclusive practice
     
  • links supporting music and special needs


Publishing

We publish materials that meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • they promote creative music-making
     
  • they are flexible enough to permit some degree of customisation
     
  • they reach out to those deprived of music, for whatever reason


We also distribute creative and inclusive music resources from other publishers and welcome enquiries from like-minded teachers and community musicians.
