We are passionate about every human being accessing creative, imaginative and artistic education.
Music, Arts & Creative Education
As professional musicians and artists, we are passionate about every human being accessing creative, imaginative and artistic education. We work with all sorts of partners to promote excellent artistic experiences across a range of artforms. We believe that music, art, creativity and culture can have an immeasurable impact on us as human beings. Its essential to our lives. For our good health, wellbeing, positive mental/emotional/spiritual health, resilience, ability to communicate and express ourselves, our educational attainment, for our society’s cohesion and safety, and for the economy.
Project & Event Management
Hand on Heart Arts offers project and event management services to a wide range of clients, particularly within music education and the arts. At Hand on Heart Arts, we are all about BIG IDEAS and SMALL DETAILS: we balance the practical minutiae with the bigger creative picture to guarantee project success. We regularly project manage concerts, music events, education programmes, conferences, and other related projects and events in the arts, music and education.
We love working directly with people and there’s nothing better than musicking with other people! We are professional Music Leaders and Music Directors in a range of different projects & programmes including in school classrooms, alternative settings such as hospitals, and other out- of-school environments.
Evaluation & Reports
We run lots of projects and programmes in music education, and so lots of people trust us to reflect on and evaluate their music education programmes. We work closely alongside people who we write evaluation reports for, to make sure that it is a positive and useful experience for everyone. We hope that the reports that we have written have affected positive change in music education practice and for the children and young people accessing music education.
We want people to realise their potential, in whatever way that means to them. We think we're pretty good at helping with this.
WHERE WE WORK...
Our clients love what we do. And we love working with those clients. We would love you to be one of those!
WHAT THEY SAY...
Our clients love what we do, but don't take our word for it!
I have known Russ and Laura for over 2 years now and have had many business dealings with them. I find their demeanour always approachable and thoughtful……..a pleasure to be involved with. They are above board in their integrity, honesty and forthrightness and are people that I expect to have a long going relationship with in business as well as in life. Their approach to music is one of innovation and thinking out of the box……..cutting new lines and re-thinking old ones. They symbiotically strive to see in a new way and to hear things they haven’t heard before or to hear old things from a different place………which is what makes music new and exciting.
