Singing Against the Clock with Pete Churchill

Sunday 30 April 2017, 10.00h – 16.00h 
Laban Building, Creekside, London SE8 3DZ

Needing some inspiration for your vocal group work and new group singing ideas to incorporate into your practice? This one-day course, led by internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist and music educator Pete Churchill, is the singing boost you need!

This training day will concentrate on the techniques of teaching songs by ear, focusing specifically on the most efficient ways of learning by ear and also on the most appropriate material to use. Participants will gain strategies for preparing and delivering songs in unison and simple harmony without notation and within the time restraints of a typical lesson.

Whatever your level of experience and vocal skill, this practical session will arm you with new ideas, techniques, inspiration, and confidence to take back to your classroom, teaching practice, or workshop session.

An optional follow-on group Skype session with Pete after the training course is offered to all trainees and included as part of the fee.

In Perfect Harmony – partnerships for learning at KS3 music

Wednesday 11 January, 10.30-16.30
King Charles Court, Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London SE10 9JF  

This professional development day is for education / project managers in arts and cultural organisations, music education hubs and others who are interested in developing new ways to engage with music in schools at Key Stage 3.

Key Stage 3 music is the highest level at which music education is a statutory entitlement for all young people in UK state schools. However, many music teachers struggle to make the Key Stage 3 classroom the dynamic and musical learning environment they wish it to be and arts organisations often report facing significant challenges in engaging with teachers and school music at Key Stage 3.

This workshop builds on debates between cultural organisations and teachers that took place as part of the Teach Through Music KS3 Music professional development programme (2014-15). It provides a forum for cultural partners to gain further insight into learning from Teach Through Music - from the Project Director and a participating teacher - to share experiences, and think creatively about next steps in developing the role of arts and cultural organisations in supporting Key Stage 3 Music. Participants can expect to deepen their understanding of Key Stage 3 music in London schools and the priorities of teachers before taking time to consider ways of engaging with schools. The afternoon will focus on professional learning and how this can be embedded in relationships between cultural organisations and schools.

This workshop is led by Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance as part of the Music Excellence London partnership. It is open to all, including organisations outside of London and those not previously involved in Teach Through Music or Music Excellence London.
