What will you learn at the workshop?

To start with, you will learn how music learning contributes to making physiological changes in the brain. How it strengthens certain neural connections which contribute to learning in a holistic sense. Then we move on to seeing how music can be integrated into daily teaching; how to use music to cover the Prime and Specific areas laid out by the EYFS. Furthermore, we learn how to teach music for differentiated learning in a classroom setting, including EAL/SEND profiles. Musicbuds adopts a flexible approach. The workshops can be tailored to your own particular setting. Contact us for your specific requirements.

Do you have to have a musical background to attend?

Absolutely not! The resources benefit a wide audience. For classroom teachers, the workshop provides confidence in delivering music seamlessly into the EYFS curriculum. For music teachers, the workshops offer an insight into an holistic teaching approach. Musical development becomes an integral part of the learning process, and classroom management becomes a breeze!

How much does it cost?

Sessions can be booked on a half-day or full day basis. The reasonable charges are open to negotiation and take into account the length, location and content of the training &/or workshop. Please get in touch with your query to see what the possibilities are.
