Notes

Weavers’ Field Special School supported children with emotional and behavioural difficulties, all of whom live with conditions or circumstances that result in low self-esteem, lack of confidence and difficulty working as a group. The schoolboys featured in the listening experience were 9 – 11 years old and participated in five music and composition sessions between 20 June and 18 July.
