Free, practical training session: identifying and supporting musical talent in your class
As part of the Furthering Talent programme we’re delighted to offer this free training session for primary school teachers on Thursday 4 June 2015:
What is musical potential, how can we recognise it, and how can we support it? Join us to explore some practical ways of spotting talent when working with your class and ensuring all your children benefit. We'll be trying out some of the musical activities we've discovered that are really effective, and giving you some planning ideas too. Get ready to sing and make lots of noise with percussion! We’ll also show some examples from this CPD programme’s online film resources and discuss some new approaches to supporting musical progression too.
The session will be led by musician Hugh Nankivell and Hester Cockcroft from Awards for Young Musicians. Here’s what previous participants have said:
“Well worth attending – helps focus in on spotting pupils with musical potential within first access. And motivating me to do something about it” “Very good mix of practical work and theoretical discussion. Thank you.” “Very eye-opening – good to think outside the box with music teaching.” “I would highly recommend this course as it is inspiring and gives me ideas to develop further.” “Excellent, informative, thought provoking” “Good and very interactive – not just listening!” “Thanks very much! The 3 hours went very quickly.” “Very inspiring. Thank you. Really enjoyed it.” “Please go!”
