EUROPE’S BIGGEST MUSIC EDUCATION SHOW!
The moment we’ve all been waiting for – EXPO week is finally upon us. In case you haven’t checked out our program yet, just follow this link and have a look for yourself. Now that all sessions, workshops and performances have been finalised, picking the best bits is no mean feat:
On day 1 Disney’s The Lion King will provide this year’s vocal warm-up; something that will come in very handy throughout the show.
Later on that day, a panel of education experts will be discussing The Future of Music. With new syllabuses on their way, how can you make the case for music education being paramount for your school?
Day 2 will give you the chance to listen to another panel discussion; this time our educational experts will elaborate on changes to the drama curriculum.
If you ever wanted to know what exactly you can do with your music trolley – well you’ve come to the right place!
The days are still short, temperatures outside are low – what you need is a vibrant vocal warm-up! Who would be better for this than the team behind Disney’s The Lion King?
Join us for this interactive session and you’ll be singing your way through EXPO!
In this lunch-time debate, a panel of music education experts will be discussing the role that music will play in GCSE, AS- and A-level education and indeed how to defend its importance in the future.
Join the discussion and find out what you can do to further music education in your school!
For all of you who always wanted to explore the full potential of the music trolley, we have lined up a humorous and inventive session that explores what is lurking at the bottom of this handy helper!
At the end of the session you will be encouraged to practice your skills, combine rhythms from around the world and be part of one of the biggest ensembles EXPO has ever seen!
ABRSM’s Chief Examiner explores and explains the close and vital relationship between knowledge, understanding and skill and between the study and the craft of music, as well as other performance-based activities. We know that ‘Music Theory’ is increasingly at risk of seeming unnecessary – possibly even irrelevant – but John will suggest that in fact it has never been more important to effective musical learning and sustainable progress.
