Secondary Music Network Meetings
Secondary Music Network Meeting
Date: Wednesday 4th October 2023
Time: 4:30pm - 5:30pm
Venue: Online via Zoom
Do come along and meet other music teachers – this is a great opportunity to share ideas, resources and meet like-minded musicians! We will start by thinking about future CPD that secondary teachers would like to help them in their schools. Then I will be presenting the national picture of music education at KS3, 4 and 5, which is pretty depressing at the moment, but it’s up to us to find solutions to increase pupil engagement and try to fight back against the EBacc and other barriers to pupil uptake of music GCSE and A Level. Perhaps you have high numbers of pupils this year – please come and share what you’re doing to achieve these numbers. We will be discussing ensembles and bands that you have running in your school, how peripatetic teachers can help (and the importance of these teachers), and how we can address the national problems in Herefordshire. Every little helps!
