Music Education Solutions has recently expanded its range of online courses for primary, secondary, and instrumental music teachers. Whether you’re looking for planning inspiration, help with the national curriculum, behaviour management tips, or want to develop your understanding around the theory of musical learning, there is something for everyone!
Each course costs £99, is valid for 6 months, and comes with a certificate on completion.
To find out more, visit the Music Education Solutions website.
Led by LSO Workshop leader Rachel Leach and LSO musicians, these day-long workshops at LSO St Luke’s equip primary school teachers, and other staff teaching music, with the skills to take a creative and hands-on approach to composing music in the classroom.
As part of each Creative Day, attendees will receive a complimentary ticket to a linked LSO evening concert at the Barbican Hall.
Where? LSO St Luke’s, 161 Old St, London EC1V 9NG
When? Monday 11 March 2019, 10.00am-3.00pm & Monday 29 April 2019, 10.00am-3.00pm

In addition to termly Creative Days, we also run a year-long CPD programme for primary teachers, Music in the Classroom. Creative Days explore some of the content of this year-long programme, and are therefore an ideal way to experience our way of working before you apply for Music in the Classroom.
Cost to school: £75+VAT per Creative Day per teacher
If the cost is a barrier to your school’s participation, please contact us to discuss options. To book a place, or for more information, please contact Pia Luck at email@example.com and provide your name, email address, and school address.

Following a successful pilot year, Trinity Laban is delighted to announce bookings are now open for the return of Beyond the Dots, a Summer School for young musicians aged 11-19 years. Bursary support for eligible young people to attend at the subsidised price of just £70 (normal price £210) is now available.
Beyond the Dots is a mixed ability 3-day holiday course supporting young musicians aged 11 – 19 to develop musical skills and creativity. Trinity welcome young instrumentalists who have been playing for 3+ years with bursaries available on a first come, first served basis to applicants who are able to evidence eligibility for free school meals or whose parents/ guardians /carers are in receipt of means tested benefits (income support, job seekers allowance).
Trinity recognise that, for those on low incomes, £70 can be difficult to find, and they therefore welcome the support of any school or Music Hub who feels able to further subsidise a place for a young musician from their area/school. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss this.
Further information about the summer school, and standard booking can be found here.
