Episode 13 of The Music Man Project Podcast, presented by founder and CEO of The Music Man Project charity, David Stanley.
This week's guest is Margaret Rimmer, inspirational retired Headteacher of Kingsdown Special School. Margaret was vital to the development of The Music Man Project. She wanted to make Kingsdown “a musical school” and engaged The Music Man Project to help her embed music across the curriculum, to play a central role in the life of her pupils and to support their basic skill development. Margaret’s legacy lives on in the music teaching, the school choir, orchestra and assemblies. Her pupils performed with The Music Man Project at the London Palladium and in concerts, fundraising events and competitions.
The world record-breaking Music Man Project provides award-winning accessible music education and performance opportunities for children and adults with learning disabilities across the UK and around the world. These remarkable musicians have performed at the Royal College of Music, the London Palladium and the Royal Albert Hall.
Every podcast includes news, music, interviews and lots of other exciting features and surprises. It celebrates the achievements of all people with learning disabilities from around the world.
