SESSION 1) Developing ensemble skills
Performing in an ensemble or playing duets can be one of the most rewarding musical experiences for pupils at any stage. Learning the skills needed to play with others will help your pupils to develop an awareness of texture, structure and balance, and to understand roles within the music, all of which benefit solo performance as well. In this session we’ll explore how you can nurture ensemble skills that will give your pupils an awareness of their role as a leader or accompanist, and develop their ability to listen and respond musically to other people's ideas.
SESSION 2) Motivation and progression
Motivation and progression are inextricably related. Each drives and fuels the other… though if one fades, the other suffers. This free-flowing session, shaped live using the Sli.do audience interaction tool, will explore the mutual relationship between these two vital ingredients of successful learning. It will also look at the challenges involved in maintaining both motivation and progression, and positive ways to invigorate one in order to turbo-charge the other!
SESSION 3) Developing core musical skills
What’s the difference between teaching someone to be a musician and simply teaching someone to play an instrument or to sing? Here we consider the core musical skills we need to be teaching, how they interconnect and how to integrate them into a lesson effectively.
SESSION 4) Spotlight on hearing health
In this session the ISM will explore how you can lead by example by promoting good hearing health practice, both for yourself and for your students.
