Masterclasses – taking your practice to the next level

Sound Connections is always looking at how to meet your professional development needs. We know that many of you are confident and experienced practitioners and so our latest programme of Masterclasses provides the opportunity to enhance your skills by working with nationally recognised experts. These sessions are designed to provide in-depth understanding and the chance to test new skills with support from the workshop leader.

The first two Masterclasses have been programmed with more in the pipeline.

Conducting Masterclass
Wednesday 18th March 2015, 10.00am – 3.30pm
This Masterclass offers a fantastic opportunity to work closely for a whole day with one of the UK’s finest young, dynamic choral and orchestral directors Dominic Peckham. All participants will have the wonderful opportunity of conducting throughout the day and receiving feedback and guidance from Dominic.

Early Years Masterclass: ‘What’s That Noise? – Encouraging Child-led Musicality’
Friday 27th February 2015, 9.30am – 3.30pm
This is a specialised and rare hands-on opportunity for early years practitioners to gain a greater awareness and understanding of child-initiated music-making with 3-4 year olds and ways in which it can be encouraged. This training is unique in that it will be set directly within an early years context; the wonderful Kintore Way Chidlren’s Centre, with whom this Masterclass is being held in partnership.


As a small charity we rely upon donations from generous individuals, trusts and companies to support our work with children and young people across London.
