BBC Ten Pieces Creates films for the Send and Disability Community

TV presenter Ade Adepitan, has teamed up with BBC Ten Pieces, to make classical music more accessible for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities in the UK.

The series contains a series of films created in partnership with the BBC Philharmonic and Drake Music Scotland, and uses Makaton, interactive videos and comprehensive lesson plans suitable for all key stages.

The selected pieces show that there is no one type of ‘classical music’ an umbrella term used to describe a huge variety of pieces, styles and orchestral music.

Music includes Delia Derbyshire’s theme tune for Doctor Who and Hans Zimmer’s Earth as inspirational starting points.

TV personality, Ade Adepitan said: “I’m so happy to be supporting BBC Ten Pieces in its mission to make music accessible to kids all across the UK. I’ve been working with Ten Pieces to create some exciting new films for children with disabilities and learning difficulties across the UK to get creative with classical music. You should give them a watch! It was really fascinating making these films and learning Makaton.”
