The LSMS Music Educators Conference 2020 will soon be 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.
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.
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.

Conference Feedback 2019
As a retired primary teacher I understand that my role as a link governor is as a source of support to the school and a source of information for the rest of the governing body. Making that less daunting to those governors without an education background is essential. Before I retired, I was lucky to work in a school with a two form entry in every year group which meant my colleague and I could support each other in our weaker subjects. Mine was Music. I really enjoyed the conference as it enabled me to see some of the amazing new ideas for teaching the Music curriculum. I always write a report for the other members of the governors to read
