We are sure you are aware of the National Plan for Music (NPME) which was launched last year; The Power of Music to change Lives.
Within this plan three distinct but interlinked areas of provision are highlighted, that when all in place offer a high-quality music education for our young people. These are:
- Curriculum Music
- Instrumental and Vocal Lessons
- Musical Events and Opportunities
Along with this there is an expectation that all schools should have a Music Development Plan that brings these areas into focus.
Keeping to the vision of the NPME, Leicestershire Music have put together a day of training, to give you food for thought in these areas, through training from National Experts in music education.
Please see below for Speaker information.
Mark Phillips was an HMI for 16 years, including nearly ten years as a senior HMI for London and as Ofsted's national lead for music.
Prior to joining Ofsted, Mark taught music and English, including as an advanced skills teacher where he working in all phases from the Early Years to Sixth Form. He has also held leadership roles in schools, a local authority music service and a local authority school improvement service.
In September 2022, Mark founded BEAMS Education and Music, offering consultancy support to schools, local authorities, academy chains and music hubs.
