I’m very pleased to a Fellow for Teach Through Music – a year of fully subsidised professional development, support and inspiration for KS3 Music in London.
Official enrolment for Teach Through Music is now open, and with 75% of the quota already filled, you will need to register quickly to secure a place. Visit www.teachthroughmusic.org.uk or follow @TTMLondon for more information.
Teach Through Music embodies the ethos of teachers and pupils behaving as musicians and being empowered through creative ownership, and is designed to fit around the busy lives of music teachers. It is flexible, allowing each teacher to engage at the right level for them. We want to support teachers to invest in their leadership skills and subject knowledge, empowering them to discover new answers and approaches that are appropriate to their school. Our programme focuses on making music the dominant language of the classroom and teachers reconnecting with their own musicianship.
Networking, debating, sharing and developing best practice with other music teachers is a key feature of Teach Through Music. Our aim is to overcome isolation of music teachers and invest in a community of practice where schools, hubs and music education partners collaborate effectively to support a centre of excellence for KS3 Music in London.
