PODCAST [25] Equality, Diversity & Inclusion planning and instrumental tutor training with Roz De Vile of Music Masters

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.

You can listen now below, or on Spotify (search for the name) and iTunes or your favourite podcast app.


What’s in this episode?

We talk about:

  • Roz’s route into music education, from her early experience of trying to find her identity as a musician, to working at Gallion’s Primary School as Music Manager
  • Music Masters’ split-class school violin and cello programmes, which take place across all year groups and up to three times a week for many pupils
  • Their primary teacher training – PGCEi in Group Instrument Learning for instrumental music tutors
  • What their ‘I’m In’ Equality, Diversity and Inclusion tool and process involves and how music organisations can get involved
  • and we finish with three pieces of advice and encouragement for people working in music education organisations during the global pandemic
