Whether you’re currently teaching young singers online, teaching music with social distancing restrictions, or making decisions about adjusting your practices, this three-hour online workshop will give you great ideas for how to make music education work in the autumn and beyond.
The Belfast Philharmonic Youth Choirs spent spring 2020 reworking our leading choral education programme to operate virtually, incorporating new techniques and practices. One of the lead projects involved our Youth Choir collaborating with composer Laura Sheils to write a brand new piece of music to record remotely and share online. In this practical afternoon workshop, the Belfast Philharmonic staff will share ideas and techniques for converting your own musicianship to work online or at distance, including a session on composing music with young singers.
The workshop will run from 2.00-5.00pm with a short break. All sessions will have opportunity for discussion and there will be an additional 30 minutes after the workshop to allow attendees to ask further questions.
This workshop would be useful for: Primary teachers; Post-primary music teachers; Vocal and instrumental teachers; Singers and instrumental performers; Musicianship teachers; Music students; Conductors; and Choral singers.
We want this workshop to be accessible for everyone who would find it useful and our Pay What You Can tickets are £5. If you are in a position to pay the higher ticket price, that will subsidise our cheaper tickets and the continuing work of the Society in choral education.
Date: Saturday 26th September
