I am often invited to speak about the role of Music in Theatre, Music and Emotional Literacy, Music in Cross-curricular Learning and the various projects I deliver in schools. I have recently delivered seminars and led discussion groups at the following events:
- The Imaginate Festival
- Children in Scotland Annual Conference
- Strategic Music Partnership Early Years Conference, Aberdeen
- Learning, Emotions and Well being Conference, East Lothian
- SEAL conference, Swindon Borough Council
- The Child’s Curriculum seminars, Glasgow
- Edinburgh Early Years Conference
CPD opportunities are available offering Primary teachers creative ideas on how best to use music in the classroom to promote Emotional Literacy and develop Cross-curricular Learning.
These “hands-on”, practical sessions usually last for 2 hours and are designed to include all staff, regardless of their level of musical ability. The content of each session is adapted to respond to the needs of the participants, introducing the ideas and approaches used in the workshops and courses outlined in the Education section .
In the last 3 years I have delivered CPD courses for East Lothian, West Lothian, Midlothian, Stirling and East Renfrewshire Education authorities.
Music and Me
A special course of CPD has been developed to introduce and support Music and Me, offering practical suggestions on how best to use the resource in the classroom, as well as explaining the theory and research behind it.
