Musical Futures, in partnership with Ableton, are looking to recruit 10 Tech Champion Teachers/Schools from the UK & Ireland to be part of an exciting two-year project involving exploring and developing innovative approaches within their classrooms using music technology.

The closing date for applications is Friday 8th March, 5pm.
