Project overview and aims:

To provide CPD for music teachers/specialists in leading singing activities and in forming and developing school choirs.

The Bach Choir’s Musical Director David Hill and Vocal Coach Hilary Jones will run the CPD. It will provide training in developing the singing abilities of children, basic conducting skills, shared enthusiasm for singing to lead by example, techniques for improving co-operation and listening skills and hands-on experience in conducting a group of singers from The Bach Choir.

Teachers who complete this course should be able to use their own voices with confidence, lead groups of children to sing with enjoyment, enhance children’s listening skills, select appropriate repertoire, use conducting skills effectively, use leadership skills to inspire and control rehearsals, achieve a musical performance.

I learnt a great deal from the conducting session and I know it will impact upon and improve my future practice. (Participant in 2013 event)
