Music is the target language of learning in our Subject Knowledge sessions, and we hold this principle at the heart of everything we do. Our sessions are practical, as is the core nature of our subject, and our key aim is to inspire the next generation of music educators by reminding them of how it feels to be a pupil in an engaging and stimulating musical environment. We spend our year together building musical skills, widening and deepening our knowledge of all areas of our expansive subject, and generally immersing ourselves in the joy of music-making.
Our trainees come from a wonderfully diverse range of musical backgrounds and experiences, and we use this to our advantage by sharing and learning from each other throughout the course. We look at every aspect of the school-based musical experience including performing, composing and appraising, as well as subject-led approaches to central educational issues, such as behaviour for learning through musical engagement. Whether we are rapping the register or learning traditional West African drumming and dance, a willingness to get involved will ensure you make the most of your year with us. We hope that you will end the course musically nourished for your future as an educator and leader in the endlessly fulfilling world of music education.
