Musical Mavericks was founded by Dave Cox and Gina Edwards in October 2018.
Gina has over 17 years of working in the early years sector, in a variety of settings and roles including managing a setting and supporting children with additional needs. Dave has run music sessions within the care sector for adults and children, many with additional needs since 2005. When Covid-19 struck Dave joined Gina in the provision of children’s online zoom music sessions, loved it and has since been involved in the provision of off-line music sessions and gigs.
The name ‘Musical Mavericks’ was born, because the definition of being a Maverick is to be an ‘independent-minded person’. David and Gina felt this perfectly matched what they wished to encompass in their music sessions. To have independent learners who could cohesively work and thrive together with a sense of belonging, safety and community. Music sessions are designed and run in such a way that harnesses every child’s unique individuality and assists them in being free thinkers, creative and confident learners.
