Music has a power of forming the character and should therefore be introduced into the education of the young. (Aristotle)
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, and life to everything… Without music, life would be an error. (Plato)
When young people make music together, they work toward a common goal that has the potential to change lives profoundly for the better.
The quality of music teaching has been widely variable over the past decade. Despite large Government funded projects, available resources are variable; teachers have needed to be creative and innovative to develop their music departments. Music, like all education, is constantly changing to keep pace with developments within the industry and the classroom. The realisation of these improvements is the result of highly committed, professional teachers, who instil in our young people a passion for music, the skills of performance and composition, and an understanding of the dedication and hard work necessary to achieve meaningful success in this subject.
Great music education is a partnership between classroom teachers, specialist teachers, professional performers and a host of other organisations, including those from the arts, charity and voluntary sectors.
Our trainee music teachers are given the best support to succeed in the education. Specialist workshops on lesson delivery and the pedagogy of music teaching are given on a weekly basis, and these are tailored to the trainees’ specific needs. Subject Professional Studies are complimented by a number of subject specific tasks that are designed to develop all the skills required to become an outstanding music teacher.
