MUSIC TREE’S SUMMER TRAINING COURSES WILL HELP YOU TO FEEL READY TO START YOUR CLASSES AGAIN, BRINGING FUN AND CREATIVE ACTIVITIES TO YOUR LESSONS

How does this sound?

  • Following the students’ needs should be the primary focus of teaching;
  • learning music is fundamental to a child’s development;
  • research in music education and neuromusic are fundamental to understand our students’ musical needs;
  • creativity and improvisation should form a larger part of a music teacher’s curriculum;
  • it’s important to keep learning no matter how experienced a teacher is.

SUMMER COURSES FOR YOU – NEW LEARNING TOGETHER

I love summer! Sun, sea, new energies and lots of time to study and improve to get ready to teach again after a long break.
Every summer I take some space only for myself to attend training events and refresh my motivation for teaching, with new ideas that I will bring with me for the rest of the year.

What we need after a whole year of teaching is some time to connect again with our passion for music education, share strategies and doubts with other teachers and have fun learning new activities between colleagues.

DISCOVER MUSIC TREE’S SUMMER COURSES

This journey together will be short but very intense. Every course is structured over the course of four days; during each day we will work for six hours on activities for children of different ages, connecting theory and practice. We will sing, explore with movement and body music, whilst discussing about strategies taken from the latests research in music education.

The courses will take place in London, at Music Tree’s venue, and at the same time also online so you will be able to choose the best solution for you and attend the events that you prefer, even if you cannot fly here or you are too far away.

You can attend one, two courses or the whole week.
