TRAINING COURSES

 Our courses are for anyone teaching music in early years or primary settings or for those leading choirs in KS1, 2 & 3. They can act as a boost to a programme you are part of in-school, or are effective as a stand alone training opportunity. 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.
