Target audience

EYFS and PRIMARY Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Specialists.

Aims of the course
  • Always curious about the power of music and movement in your classroom but not sure where to start?
  • Come join us for two days of music making – no experience necessary! – and come away with the tools and confidence to sing, say, dance, and play with your students.
  • From brain breaks to yoga and small group compositions to folk dance, music and movement has a wonderful role to play in the classroom if you open your mind to the possibilities.
Intended outcomes

Through active participation, group discussions and practice teaching time we will explore:

  • Simple ways to sing, say, dance, and play together
  • The educational and scientific benefits of music and movement in the general classroom
  • How brain breaks, yoga, and more can be implemented and explored with ease
  • Growing your own musical and movement knowledge through active music-making and tools to take a song and create with it in the classroom
  • The approach to elementary music entitled Orff Schulwerk and the process from exploration to imitation to improvisation to composition with easy-to-comprehend terminology and experiences for non-music teachers
  • Tools necessary to create small group music and movement activities in the classroom
  • The joy of music-making with others and the encouragement needed to feel confident bringing music and movement into your own classroom and with your own students
