Teach Through Music Inspire Events – booking open!

Bookings for free places on Teach Through Music‘s upcoming Inspire Events are now open!

Taking the form of seminars, conferences and networking, 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.

All Inspire Events are open to enrolled teachers and others involved in Key Stage 3 music. We hope to bring together a diverse mix of participants, inspirational speakers, cutting-edge thinkers, and experts in the field of music education. The events will provide the chance to meet with representatives from London’s world-class cultural offer and trailblazing arts organisations.

The first in the series of these unmissable events will be a twilight session on Wednesday 12 November at City Hall, on the theme of Preparing all pupils for Key Stage 4. This event will focus on how teachers can develop strategies to support all KS3 pupils to achieve the next steps in their musical learning. Click here to reserve your free place.

The second takes place on the evening of Tuesday 25 November at the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, on the subject of Principles of musical assessment. This event will offer a forum for debate and sharing of approaches to assessment and progression. Click here to reserve your free place.

Upcoming in the Spring term next year is a full-day event on Wednesday 18 March at the Barbican Centre, on the theme of Making the case 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. Click here to reserve your free place.
