At a Melbourne English Language School, young immigrants and refugees from all over the world come together to learn English and prepare for mainstream school. They also take part in a creative music program in which each class composes and performs their own music, in the midst of a huge diversity of backgrounds in music experiences, schooling, and English ability. This paper describes the pedagogical approach developed by the musician resident at the school, and discusses ways of establishing strong musical understanding by non-verbal means.
