In their 2012 report ‘Wider Still and Wider’ Ofsted highlighted the need for schools to ‘teach music musically.’ But what does that really mean?
During this half day course you will explore the concept of ‘musical’ teaching through practical music-making activities, video case studies, action learning sessions and peer-to-peer discussion. You will gain lots of ideas for use in the classroom as well as an understanding of how to adapt the work you are already doing to make it more ‘musical’.
This course is suitable for all Primary Staff who teach music, including Music Coordinators, Class Teachers and Teaching Assistants. Secondary Music Teachers are also welcome to attend.
The course will be led by Elizabeth Stafford, Director of Music Education Solutions Ltd, a qualified vocal and primary classroom music teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience. Elizabeth was previously a senior leader for the KS2 Music CPD Programme (the government’s national training programme for Music Teachers involved in Wider Opportunities projects), and has mentored for the ABRSM, Trinity College London and the Open University.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to attend this CPD session please contact Caroline Whittington on 01384 816103 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 21 June 2013
