Slide background

Education

Be inspired. Take risks. Play with confidence.

Our belief is that learning experiences which fuse both analytical and creative skills are the key to a holistic and inclusive education experience. Both skills can only be developed through active participation and experiential education and our programs deliver this in a fun, engaging and postive way. Cognitive and affective learning (left and right brain, analytical and creative) is what we believe in and create in all our learning designs.

How do we get children engaged in education in an inclusive way?

It starts with creating an environment for self discovery. When students take ownership of their own achievements those achievements then become skills. Our programs combine cognitive and affective learning to develop important life skills, confidence to create and peer-to-peer coaching. Our structured processes are self-directed and collaborative  providing a framework for students to work together and grow together.

Bambajam-the-mead

Bambajam is an eco-friendly music education program that supports emotional intelligence and coaching skills for children. Music is our collective language and we believe these skills should be developed first, giving students the necessary communication skills to play music in groups.

Our process guides students through theory in an active environment. Students learn to read music, develop active listening skills, musical dynamics, harmony and leadership skills.

How We Can Help

We conduct workshops and experiences for schools.

We are also in the midst of launching a very exciting eco-friendly musical resource that builds inclusivity in music education whilst teaching and exploring affective skills. If you would like to find out more, you can drop us a note, and we will put you on the mailing list.

Some great schools and colleges we’ve worked with

 

 

Our approach, method, games & simulations were designed as a tool for education. We’ve managed to use music to help teams. These teams are not always from Fortune 100’s but perhaps the next leaders of the leading organisations.

Coming very soon is our education programme. We’re in the midst of some really exciting development which we can’t wait to share so please sit tight…

About Duncan McKee

I'm a jazz pianist, television composer & educator. I share the stage with some of the worlds best musicians.

I compose soundtracks for television networks such as HBO and The Discovery Channel and I also write for my own trio The Duncan McKee Trio and multi-cultural group Tembusu.

I'm fascinated by music and its collaborative effect on people. When I'm not on stage playing music I'm very often on stage talking about it.
