Awards and Certificates in Musical Development
MMF is proud to be a registered centre for Trinity College London’s Awards and Certificates in Musical Development. ACMD are fully inclusive qualifications designed in association with Sounds of Intent. The qualifications set a new standard for accessible, inclusive music assessments which are available to all music learners. Learners are assessed by their music leader or teacher through a process of ongoing observation within regular music-learning opportunities. If you are interested in having your young musician or student, take part, contact the MMF team at firstname.lastname@example.org
We want to remove every barrier to music-making. MMF believes in the Social Model of Disability and we want to do our part in creating inclusive accessible spaces.
