Training

The Musical Futures training programme focuses on developing and extending the skills of classroom and instrumental teachers to create sustainable music opportunities for students in schools. It is underpinned by pedagogies developed from informal learning and non-formal teaching approaches to classroom music. Delegates put themselves in the position of their learners and, above all, Musical Futures training reminds teachers of their musical roots and is always a fun, inspiring and creative day.

Claire Armour, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

The children I am working with are responding to positively. They are very keen to learn new music and don’t not feel threatened to play. They enjoy the ‘have a go’ and ‘just play’ strategy.

Mhairi Easton, Southesk primary School

Brilliant ideas to take forward into my own teaching… a fantastic day – left with lots of new ideas and strategies…
