Quite a lot of Coleridge-Taylor’s music tells a story, or refers to an interesting ‘real’ idea. This music frequently employs attractive rhythms and lively tunes, as well as demonstrating very well the more formal aspects of composition.
Is there scope here for developing musical activities which offer both education and enjoyment, especially for those not overly familiar with ‘classical’ music as a genre?
And does the story of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, the man and activist for black people’s rights, also provide considerable scope for educational themes even beyond arts and music?
We hope you will join us in exploring how best to use the life and personal example of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor in present-day educational environments.
