Teach Through Music – programme update

The beginning of the new school term brought a further wave of recruitment for Teach Through Music. This year-long, fully subsidised professional development programme for KS3 music teachers in London schools is led by Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and a partnership of world-class music organisations.

The programme has kicked off with a string of Launch Events welcoming the new recruits and introducing them to the ethos of Teach Through Music. Events were generously hosted at Cecil Sharp House by the English Folk Dance and Song Society, Queen Elizabeth Hall by the Southbank Centre, and the iconic Laban building by Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

Our Teach Through Music teachers took part in three very different experiences – a folk songwriting and arranging session, a workshop of vocal ensembles led by Pete Churchill, and a session based on Trinity Laban and the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Animate Orchestra. Each event also provided the opportunity for networking and discussion, and mapping out the structure of Teach Through Music over the year ahead.

If you’re a Key Stage 3 music teacher it’s not too late to take part! Enrolment continues with only 25 places remaining – so visit the website and find out how you can get involved. For members of the wider music education community, watch this space for exciting announcements about our upcoming Inspire Events.

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.
