David Ashworth is a freelance education consultant, specialising in music technology. He is Project Leader for www.teachingmusic.org.uk.
He has successfully led Lancashire Music Service’s flagship ICT initiative, ICreaTe, for the last five years. This has had a major impact on the way primary and secondary schools across the county use music technology in creative music making.
He has been involved at a national level in most of the major music initiatives in recent years. Last year, he was commissioned by TDA to provide a briefing paper and lead a symposium on using ICT in music education. The outcomes of this formed the basis for the Technology Annex of the National Plan for Music Education.
