Digital TRAINING COURSES

Image

In 2021, we're re-launching our award-winning training courses in a new digital format!

 

Digital courses will cover the same content  as our original in-person courses- now via bite size sessions on Zoom. 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.  

PRICES

 

5 Session Courses: £100

3 Session Courses: £60

SONGS OF HOME  RESOURCE PACK

 

Songs of Home is a celebration of singing from every continent and culminates with Song of Until, a specially commissioned folk song of our times by award-winning composer David Bruce.

 

The premiere of Song of Until, alongside the other folk songs, took place at St John’s Smith Square, London, in November 2018. The Voices Foundation hopes that the songs in this collection are sung by as many children and staff as possible in schools up and down the country - they are to be shared and enjoyed.
