    Film screening by Robbie Campbell, with Q&A session chaired by Dr Fabia Franco (Psychology, School of Science and Technology)

    Robbie Campbell is a 3rd year PhD Ethnomusicology Scholar at SOAS, University of London. He will be presenting an immersive sensory ethnographic film (71 mins) as one strand of his research on the relationships between specific learning difficulties and indigenous processes of music making and acquisition.

    His case study on Chopi timbila xylophone music in Mozambique attempts to demonstrate and explore parallels between existing interventions for dyslexia and dyspraxia, and the holistic cultural system of socially, informally and aurally transmitted music.

    This audio-visual presentation hopes to encourage discussion on various themes relating to specific learning difficulties and dyslexia, music education, cross-discipline dialogue, and methodological approaches.

    This is a free event and everyone is welcome to attend
