More details to be posted here shortly

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.
