LSO On Track CPD for Primary Teachers

LSO On Track CPD for Primary Teachers in East London* aims to develop confidence and strategies for using music in the classroom, focusing on a creative approach to music-making.

Led by LSO Animateur Rachel Leach and LSO players, activities aim to give teachers instantly applicable practical ideas to use in the classroom with KS1 and KS2 students, including those in special education.

During any given CPD workshop we aim to help participants:

  • gain confidence both in teaching music and in using their own personal creative skills
  • learn warm up exercises, appropriate for different musical and classroom situations
  • play with other teachers in an ensemble
  • use simple music leadership and conducting techniques

Creative Day: Creative Classroom Composition
Monday 26 January 2015, LSO St Luke's
*includes follow-up session on 5 Feb with attendance at an LSO evening concert

A day-long workshop at LSO St Luke's for primary school teachers and other staff teaching music, who are musically confident or have existing musical experience. Led by LSO Animateur, Rachel Leach and musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra, this day-long session will focus on using classical repertoire as a starting point and springboard for classroom composition.

Throughout the day, you will take part in a series of composition workshops looking at different techniques and ways to explore a classical piece of music by re-composing it with children. Using Tchaikovsky's Symphony No 6 as our focus for the day, Rachel will demonstrate how to open up this piece to explore different compositional techniques.

The Creative Day will leave you with ideas you can immediately try out in class, after which you will attend a follow-up session to share your experiences with fellow teachers and discuss solutions to problems with LSO Animateur Rachel Leach, before attending an LSO concert featuring Tchaikovsky's Symphony No 6.

*includes follow-up session on 23 Apr with attendance at an LSO evening concert

A day-long workshop for primary school teachers and other staff teaching music, who are musically confident or have existing musical experience, dispelling the myth that western classical music is hard or inaccessible to children by exploring the history of western classical music through class composition and using musical forms from different eras to structure those compositions.

Led by LSO Animateur Rachel Leach and musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra, the group will travel through 300 years of music and 4 musical periods using composition to discover the main features of music from each period, from Baroque dance suites to the breakdown of rules in 20th century music.

The Creative Day will leave you with ideas you can immediately try out in class, after which you will attend a follow-up session to share your experiences with fellow teachers and discuss solutions to problems with LSO Animateur Rachel Leach, before attending an LSO concert.
