I am pleased to say there will be another Musical Interaction training day on Tuesday March 10th 2015. This course will be open to teachers and teaching assistants from any special school and the aim of the course is to introduce a clear set of principles for musical interaction and intensive interaction along with a new repertoire of musical applications in order to make a genuine impact upon the practice of the participants. The feedback from the last course was very good and the 6 week follow-ups have indicated that all participants have been able to apply the principles in the context of their work successfully. Comment from this evaluation included:
“I have been using the ideas a lot at school and its going really well! I am actually using some of the songs on Thursday in my lesson observation! It still seems to be going well and they have all loved it – no matter which age group I am teaching.”
Katie Meeney, Music Co-ordinator, Mossbrook Primary, Sheffield
“I feel I understand the theory behind the practice in a much deeper way”
M Blackwell, Thameside Music Service
“The way this course has been delivered has been inspiring…Fundamentals were explained clearly through the games and discussions at the beginning of the day”
Matthew Grayling, Woolley Wood School
“The course was perfect in every way”
Sue Brear, Teaching Assistant, Rowan School
All the participants gave the highest score of excellent when rating the course delivery, content and venue.
