This years' conference is set to be our biggest and best yet. We have taken your feedback on board, and have a great deal more choice for secondary teachers this time around. We are also hosting at Botley Park Hotel, which is a lovely venue with a great selection of different sized rooms for different types of activity.
Here is a summary of the sessions available to secondary delegates:
Keynote speech from Chris Stevens (Ofsted Music lead) - insight in to Ofsted's current guidance for Music departments, including time for Q&A.
Urban Choir for Secondary Students - tips and repertoire for teaching diverse voices in more of a popular context.
GCSE `Performing with Technology’ - strategies to assist 'non-performing musicians'.
Composition Ideas for Key Stage 3 - practical examples for live/instrumental composing, as well as take-away ideas for technology-based composition.
Starting a GCSE composition - strategies to encourage initial ideas without diminishing their creative choices.
