LSMS Music Educator's Conference 2020 - #LSMSCONF
We will post information about our 2021 Music Educator's Conference here as it becomes available. We are hoping that this will be able to take place but are understandably looking into the possibilities of how best to arrange this.
Please see below for information about last year's Conference
The LSMS Music Educators' Conference 2020 took place on Friday 31st January 2020 (9.00am - 4.00pm) at Beaumanor Hall, Beaumanor Dr, Woodhouse, Loughborough LE12 8TX.
The LSMS Music Educators Conference 2020 is nearly upon us and we are excited to announce we have national experts delivering workshops to inspire and support music education in Leicester-Shire and beyond. The overarching theme for this year is supporting schools in meeting the new Ofsted framework.
The conference will be within the beautiful surroundings of Beaumanor Hall. There will be practical and pedagogical workshops to support you in leading music within your school, listen to live music, opportunities to network and share good practice with colleagues and hear from the Key Note speaker, Faz Shah, the beatboxing violinist.
Practical Gamelan – Baby People
A chance to explore the tradition of Gamelan though practical activities and experience. Learn the traditional Malay tune Timang Barung and have a go at singing In Malay too. Participants will be given tips on how to translate the activities into the classroom.
Music Subject Leadership
A question that is being asked frequently is "What do I need to know about subject Leadership under the new framework?" After a presentation led by a Headteacher there will be time for questions and answers in this workshop that will answer many of your questions in a supportive way.
Early Years – Nicola Burke
Nicola Burke has developed Musical Development Matters in the Early Years, a document with the overall purpose of supporting practitioners, teachers, musicians and parents to see the musical attributes of young children and to offer ideas as to how they can support and nurture children's musical development by offering broad musical experiences. Nicola will share these documents and share a range of ways that the documents can support you in music education.
