A Pathway to outstanding music learning through the arts - Led by Kim Waldock
Suitable for Key Stages 1 - 3
Looking for more ideas for your music classroom? The workshop will demonstrate for primary generalist and music teachers a number of different ways you could approach music activity in the classroom. As it is a learning by doing activity, teachers will need to be prepared to move, sing and play (as a class would be expected to) and they will be provided with the resources we use so that they can replicate the lessons back in the classroom and apply the principle to other pieces of music. It will be fun and a challenge regardless of past experience!
