Sing Up: Developing Musicianship through singing for Instrumental Teachers
Wed 15 February 2017, 10:00 – 15:00 GMT
Learn Sing Up’s approach to integrating singing into your instrumental lessons as a way into developing your pupils vocal confidence, musicianship and aural skills. Use these techniques to incorporate small amounts of high quality singing activity in your regular instrumental lessons to achieve maximum impact with your pupils. You’ll explore a range of techniques you can use with different age groups and abilities, covering skills and knowledge to support KS3 – KS5 and Grades 1 – 8.
The training event is entirely active and singing based. Teachers will learn techniques to help pupils develop aural skills & understanding such as:
- pitch matching
- musical memory
- pulse & rhythm
- intervals and scales
- basslines, chords, cadences and chord inversions
Who is it for?
This course is suitable for secondary music teachers, singing and instrumental teachers.
Outcomes for teachers:
- Learn techniques in using singing to support musical learning in your instrumental and singing lessons
- Understand how singing can develop the musical ear
- Develop your own vocal skills so you feel more confident using your voice in lessons and encourage your pupils to do the same
Using the Sing Up approach will support your pupils to develop:
- more confidence and accuracy in the singing element of aural tests.
- confident aural skills and greater overall musicianship.
