Do you sing in school?
Here is your chance to develop your choir directing skills.
For all levels of confidence and ability.
Free development day delivered by Music on Sea.
Friday 29th March 2019, 9.00am - 2.45pm at The Tickfield Centre
Working in partnership with the Come and Sing Company, Music on Sea are delighted to offer a day of CPD to KS1/2, KS3 teachers, Music Leads and Choir Directors.
The Come and Sing Company’s co-founders, Tom Appleton and Elenor Bowers-Jolley, will lead a series of discussions, presentations and practical sessions on topics such as conducting skills, vocal technique and show examples of suitable repertoire and resources available for young singers – much of which is free!
In the afternoon, we will be joined by children from a local primary school choir when participants will be given the chance to put into practice some of the skills they have learnt throughout the day.
The Come and Sing Company are also available to come into your setting at a later date to provide more one-one advice tailored to your individual needs.
Music on Sea has a commitment to support schools to deliver the singing strategy and music is currently becoming high profile on the OFSTED framework.
