This course is aimed at those with little or no previous musical training or those who are completely new to Kodály Inspired Music Education. You will go away equipped with ideas to immediately use in your teaching and receive an introduction to what is meant by the term Kodály Inspired Music Education.

The course will cover the following topics:
* The importance of singing, games and movement in the Early Years/Primary Education
* Develop confidence as a leader of singing activities
* Helping children understand the basic building blocks of music: Beat, Rhythm, Pitch, Dynamics, Tempo, Phrasing and Timbre
* Using simple classroom percussion to support a singing based curriculum
* How music benefits all areas of the curriculum – specifically literacy, numeracy, health and well-being
* Encouraging creativity in the classroom

Can’t manage both modules but still interested? No problem – each module is self-contained and you can catch up on the other part at another time! Even attending one module will transform your music teaching.

The course is also open to non-Worcester teachers, who will need to pay the full fees of £125 per module.
Worcester teachers who want to complete the certificate can attend FC02 in Monmouth in April at a cost of £125. (FC02 is also running in Nottingham in August)

Helen is also happy to provide teachers and headteachers with a telephone or face to face chat about the training and the musical, educational and mental health benefits of this music educational approach.

Research has shown that quality music education, especially through singing, can improve children’s confidence and self esteem. It also helps them stay calmer and more focused in the classroom. It helps with literacy, numeracy and critical thinking and of course music in itself is worth it!

Sadly so many teachers tell us they wish they could sing or that they can’t “do” music. They lack the confidence or knowledge to teach music effectively. As we know, budgets are so tight in schools at the moment that head teachers are unable to provide the training opportunities they desire for their teachers.

Worcester Kodály, in partnership with the British Kodály Academy and local schools, has pledged to raise money to provide this teacher training. Imagine a city where the teachers teach confident and effective music lessons. Imagine the effect on the children of our city. On their self esteem, their physical and mental health, their future inner musicians.
