Gradeoneathon

Gradeoneathon   The event is for all teachers, parents and pupils of the school.  The idea is to encourage people to learn a new instrument, but the pupils are teaching the teachers!   The cost is £10 per term.  You will then be invited to fundraise for Whiz Kids via a just  giving page.  We will run a separate entry for anyone wishing to take the exam, and will have a concert on July 16, 2016.  It is not too late to sign up – just email Marie or contact the school.

Instrumental Music Teaching

Instrumental Music Teaching by Marie McNally

Instrumental Nusic Teaching by Marie McNally

 

Instrumental Music Teaching is a definitive guide to teaching in schools. One of the most difficult things about being an instrumental teacher is the feeling of isolation. They rarely spend time with other teachers, instrumental or otherwise and seldom get a chance to to discuss problems, difficulties and successes.

This book, which looks at the highs and lows of instrumental teaching from a practical point of view, addresses these issues and shows teachers that they are not alone.
