TRAINING COURSES

jsahfi

 

"Simply the best professional development I've ever had!"

 

Our courses are for anyone teaching music in early years or primary settings or for those leading choirs in KS1, 2 & 3. They are effective as a stand alone training opportunity, or can act as a boost to a Voices Foundation programme you are part of in-school. Participants will develop their understanding of teaching music, learn how to implement music in their setting and take away practical ideas and resources which they can use immediately.  

 

Teaching Classroom Music Through Singing (2-day courses):

This series of 2-day courses provides a solid grounding in our singing-based approach to teaching primary music. Drawing on the Kodály method, our well-established approach provides any teacher (incl. class teachers or TAs without any musical experience) with the tools to deliver a highly effective & progressive class music curriculum. You can choose to attend one, two or all three courses in the same year. (NB. These 3 courses replace the old Voices Foundation 5-day course.)
