Keynote speaker – Sarah Fisher

Sarah Fisher is a multi-instrumentalist and community musician. Sarah lives in Gateshead, North East England and works in a variety of settings, specialising in inclusive music making. She studied BA Community Music at undergraduate level followed by completing her MA in Community Music. Sarah has cerebral palsy and other disabilities, which has led her to develop ways to teach which do not hinder herself or her participants which she aptly names ‘A Way not The Way’. Sarah is an avid performer and researcher and has performed and presented at various events and conferences across the UK. 


This presentation will include Sarah’s experience growing up in mainstream education and studying music, the internal and external barriers faced along the way, and how she has built resilience through trial and error, which has ultimately led to her career today.
