What is it?

Did you know that YV offers more than just the concert for your children? Get involved and do something for yourself at our Teacher Workshops!

The Young Voices Teacher Workshops represent a Continued Professional Development opportunity for teachers who want to improve or maintain the quality of singing in their school as well as teach a number of the skills set by the music national curriculum.

At the workshops we go through all the YV songs and medleys in depth, highlighting the key areas of musical and technical challenge starting with some great warm-up exercises and choir training tips from our Conductor, David Lawrence. You will also cover all the dance moves with Andy Instone and have the chance to ask questions to members of the YV admin team.

The workshops will help you teach the following elements of Key Stage 2 national curriculum for music to your pupils:

  • Play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts using their voices;
  • Listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory;
  • Appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians;
  • Develop an understanding of the history of music.
