A one-hour webinar to support the development of music teaching for children and young people
Monday, 6th July 2020 at 3:00pm – Doors open at 2:55pm
Whilst there is uncertainty of the risks of singing collectively in closed environments during the Covid-19 pandemic, this webinar explores how to extend musical skills for children and young people avoiding the use of the singing voice. This one-hour session explores alternatives to singing to develop musicianship skills in children and young people. All educators (including practitioners who do not currently work for Stagecoach Performing Arts) are most welcome to attend.
Led by the Education Team at Stagecoach Performing Arts, Performing and Composing Through Rhyme is the fifth and final session in this Explore... Music series, giving guidance on planning progressively to complement the learning that takes place in developing confident singing for children and young people. The pandemic situation is temporary - and singing can still take place at home. Therefore, this series aims to support teaching so that students can gain a wider knowledge of their own voices and, at the same time, develop their musicianship skills.
1) Vocal Exploration and Developing the Use of the 'Thinking Voice'
2) Rhythmic Games and Activities - Ways Into Notation Reading
