Welcome to HANDS ON MUSIC workshops. I specialise in providing inspirational practical music making opportunities for young people and adults. Each workshop event is individually designed to meet the particular needs of the participants and will always focus on successful practical music making activities. No previous knowledge or experience required. Examples of client's additional requests include focussing on developing teamwork, raising self esteem, multi cultural awareness and demonstrating equality of opportunity and inclusion.

All workshops are delivered by Richard Arter.


Richard's teaching was observed by an HMI as part of Ofsted inspection 378633 at St Andrew's Special School, Derby on January 12, 2012.

"An inspiring activity seen during the inspection was the school choir. It is extremely effectively lead by the outstanding music teacher and it is well attended by students who chose to be there. Students were confident enough to sing as a group and also to give solo performances and all were enthused by the activity and extremely excited by the prospect of performing a local care home in the near future."
