In this episode, I’m talking with Roz De Vile, CEO of Music Masters, a music education charity that runs group music-making programmes in five London schools, teacher training, and has developed ‘I’m In’, a diversity tool and process to help music organisations to be more inclusive and better reflect the society we live in. This episode was recorded before Christmas 2020 and the new January lockdown rules in England.
