Teach Through Music Inspire Events and Short Courses

Bookings are moving fast for our upcoming Inspire Events for Teach Through Music, our programme of professional development, inspiration and support for Key Stage 3 music teachers in London.

Teach Through Music Short Courses are beginning this week and next. Enrolled teachers – make sure you secure your free places now!

Taking the form of seminars, conferences and networking, our FREE Inspire Events offer teachers and the wider music education community the chance to come together and share best practice and research around burning issues. Inspire Events offer a platform for provocation, discussion and networking as well as further musical experiences. Open to enrolled teachers and individuals/organisations working in London schools. 

Bookings are now open for the following Inspire Events:

  • Preparing all pupils for Key Stage 4 – Living Room, City Hall, Wednesday 12 November 2014, 4.30 – 7.30pm – Now, more than ever, teachers need to be advocates and champions for music in schools. This one-day symposium will bring together head teachers, school music teachers and key campaigners to debate and exchange ideas. Best practice will be shared across schools through open discussion and the presentation of case studies. The event will also focus on how Music Hubs and cultural organisations can support teachers to creatively promote excellent musical learning to senior leadership, governors, parents and policy makers alike.
  • Principles of musical assessment – Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Tuesday 25 November 2014, 5.00 – 7.00pm – This twilight session will offer a forum for debate and sharing of approaches to assessment and progression.

There will be opportunities to hear from both teachers and pupils on how projects have enhanced and supported learning, as well as a chance to meet and network with a range of music organisations and cultural venues. These cultural organisations will be keen to hear from teachers as to how how they can better support Key Stage 3 music in London.
