For? All Teachers
Where? Lyceum Building OL1 1QG

Led by Liz Brocklehurst MA Education (Music), DipABRSM, PGCE

Feel uncertain about using percussion instruments in the classroom?
Not sure of how to go about composition?
This course will help provide lots of ideas as starting points for composition from many areas of the curriculum, including art, literature, science, geography and history as well as personal experience. It will then examine how these can be put into practice in the classroom. There will be helpful strategies for classroom management and the course will be very practically based. There will also be opportunities to consider recording compositions, including graphic notation, as well as audio and visual recordings.
Light refreshments will be provided.
