In a staff meeting yesterday we (music teachers) were asked (by management) to consider how we could increase music of black origin in our teaching repertoire and suggested listening lists given to our pupils. If i think of my favourite drummers, favourite recordings and bands, my music collection and the people i have sign posted all my drum pupils to for over the last 17 years - about half of them are black. Yes reform the police, yes change laws that are racist. but the music industry has nothing to be ashamed of when it comes to music of black origin. thoughts?
