Creative/Workshop staff

We work with a fantastic pool of freelance staff to ensure we have the broadest range of expertise, skills and experience. Our staff come from a variety of backgrounds such as formal and informal education, music therapy, professional musicianship, documentary making, animation and production etc.

Our staff  undergo comprehensive in-house training and are given the opportunity to attend regular Professional Development Forums. We also ensure that all of our staff (and volunteers) undergo vulnerable adult and child protection safeguarding training as well as regular DBS checks that are updated every three years as required.

Musical Keys provides a regular forum for its staff, volunteers and freelancers to share ideas and repertoires and to become introduced to new equipment and techniques.
