Kip Pratt

I am a violin, ukulele, recorder, pitched percussion, singing teacher and music workshop leader. I have an MA in Music Education and used to work as an MDL with Devon Music Service, after which I spent 7 years running the music specialism courses on the BEd and PGCE at Plymouth University. I also play in Blue Jewel Ceilidh Band and the Lyric Chamber Orchestra. I have 35 years experience of working with young people in all sorts of musical settings and I specialise in working with whole classes on instruments or in composing work. I also run a workshop called ‘Stories and Music’ for KS1 and 2, telling stories and helping children to improvise and compose music to illuminate them. I have run a number of projects for DMEH in conjunction with Elfyn Jones, including ‘Let’s Play’, ‘Sonorities’ and ‘7 Days of Music’. I spend my days travelling round Devon making music with young people!
