Learn Through Music with Manchester Camerata: Key Stage 1 & 2 Workshops
Posted on July 1, 2011
Calling all Primary School Teachers. Manchester Camerata have launched the 2011/12 programme of cross curricular Key Stage 1 & 2 workshops.
We have developed four exciting half-day workshops for schools, using music to explore areas of Literacy, Science and Maths across the curriculum: Fairytales (KS1), The Body Band, Jabberwocky! and Music by Numbers (KS2). Each workshop will enable participants to explore subjects from the inside out in a fresh and interesting way, creating a new piece of music from a non-music stimulus; this can be shared in an informal performance at the end of their session, making an ideal class assembly.
These practical sessions give pupils an opportunity to develop new skills and review existing ones, to improve self-confidence, academic attainment, behaviour and social skills. Each workshop can be adapted for the participating year group. Teachers can also use the workshops to increase confidence and raise their skill levels in music and composition by working alongside a professional composer and an experienced Camerata musician.
This is a fabulous opportunity for your students and staff to work alongside a professional composer and Camerata musician to explore Maths and English through music. The deadline to book your workshop is Friday 8th July. Workshops are allocated on a first come first served basis and there are no restrictions on the number of workshops per school.
