The Leicester-Shire Music Educator's Conference was, again, a great success. There was a buzz of teachers networking, sharing good practice and finding solutions to difficulties they have in leading music in their schools.
A highlight of the day for so many of us was the performance from the pupils at Dorothy Goodman School who performed their newly composed songs which are part of an Album 'Where the River Flows' a project that 4 SEN schools took part in, working with Composer Jack Ross.
The workshop leaders delivered a variety of inspiring workshops. A number of workshops had resources that delegates could take back and share with colleagues, including a Choir Support Pack, Schemes of Work and a CD and song book 'Where the River Flows'. Joanna Grace inspired teachers with the Sensory Engagement workshops and the feedback has been so positive that Joanna has agreed to deliver a whole days training in Sensory Engagement next year so watch this space and book on early to avoid disappointment.
The main conference room was filled with the sound of teachers playing djembes and learning native rhythms. We heard from Rita Hindocha, Rushey Mead Academy, about a project that is being delivered to pupils with Pupil Premium and the impact of learning to play an instrument daily can have on their education.
The new venue did not let us down, with plenty of tea, coffee, delicious treats and a 3 course meal. Thank you to all the delegates that attended - we look forward to seeing you all at next year's conference.
