A five-day course to inspire & refresh instrumental & vocal music teaching, learning and performing
Including practical psychology for teachers, pupils, parents and performance anxiety. Also playing by ear, improvising and (optional) dance for musicians.
Held in the Inner Temple, London EC4Y 7HL, overlooking the beautiful Temple Gardens and the River Thames, this course is filled with in-depth understanding, techniques and strategies to inspire and refresh instrumental and vocal music teaching, learning and performing.
It will include practical psychology for:
· Understanding why pupils do and don't learn, how they learn and how to teach -with a multisensory approach
· Performance anxiety, and how to prepare for technically secure and musically convincing performances which you, yourself, enjoy giving
· Any professional problems, as requested, including those with pupils, colleagues, parents or schools.
There will also be sessions on playing by ear and improvising with ideas for how to include these things in regular lessons. And there will be an (optional) afternoon of dance for musicians (farandole, minuet, landler, mazurka, polonaise, waltz, gallop).
Private consultations with Lucinda Mackworth-Young are also available.
The long lunch hours allow time to relax in the beautiful Temple Gardens or visit some of the best London sights and attractions, for example The London Eye, Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, The Tate Modern and Saint Paul's Cathedral.
The course coincides with the London Promenade Concert Season: The "Proms" are held annually at the Royal Albert Hall, an easy tube ride away from Temple to South Kensington. Alternatively, and closer, there will be concerts, theatre, film and other attractions at The Barbican and The SouthBank Centre.
The cost of the course (excluding meals and accommodation) is £360 reduced to £320 if paid in full by Monday 1st May 2017.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday can be attended at the daily rate of £85.
The course is non residential, but there are a variety of hotels locally in Blackfriars. Amongst the closest are: Premier Inn, Crowne Plaza, Apex Temple Court Hotel.
