What is a Teacher Workshop?

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.

Join us for a whole day of professional development led by David Lawrence (our Principal Conductor) with Craig McLeish (our Musical Director) and Andy Instone (our Creative Director). The team will take you through the entire Music Book giving you useful tips and tricks for teaching the songs and medleys in your school. You will also 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 renowned composers and musicians;
  • Develop an understanding of the history of music.

Workshops are £80 per person attending. Workshop days will run in person in Birmingham, London, Sheffield, Manchester and Bristol in September/October 2023.

Workshops are offered to all teachers bringing a choir to our concerts and any other teachers from that school who would benefit from some professional experience on teaching music methodology and self-confidence.

You will have the option to add the workshop when you register. Please note: the payment of the workshop fee must be received and approved. All workshop registrations are subject to availability until full payment is received.
