Ten Pieces Workshops in Doncaster

From Paul Davies (Head of Doncaster Music Education Hub):

I hope you enjoyed the screening of the BBC Ten pieces on Wednesday.” I thought it was amazing.

I’m sure you will agree the whole concept of the project is truly engaging!

I am contacting you on behalf of Linda Metcalfe from the Children’s University who spoke with you all at the screening. We are working in partnership with Linda and the College to look into ways of supporting schools with their projects and as part of this, Linda along with her colleagues from the college are hosting a Ten Pieces workshop, details as below:

We have arranged a network meeting at The Doncaster College Hub for staff to develop ideas with College lectures on 21st October 4pm. This is intended to be an informal meeting of minds to share and develop ideas. We hope from this meeting we can run some after school clubs/master classes free of charge including transport to the Hub (dependent on availability)

To register and book your place please contact me directly ASAP

I’m assuming that means to contact Linda Metcalfe asap. Her contact details are as follows:

Linda Metcalfe
Manager Children’s University and Forest School
