Winter Talk- Music in Historical Education

A talk by Nigel Amies. This presentation is based around the involvement of music in Nigel’s historical education work with children and the public. Music and song have been used through the ages for social, leisure and military reasons - even to help people in the workplace - and today can offer a 'gateway' into finding out about the past. Communal singing in particular is a shared activity that appears to be fading away in our modern secular society and Nigel will focus on this aspect and how it can be beneficial in a classroom, museum and public event environment.
