The Voices Foundation will be leading this session on singing with students that have SEND needs. For many voices are the most accessible instrument to use in music teaching, The Voices Foundation will help us to explore how we can support our students to use their voices successfully and in a healthy way.
This practical session will provide you with tips and tricks on how to use vocal work with pupils in special schools as well as focus on building staff confidence to use your voice in class.
This session is designed for teachers and assistants that work in special schools, however, could be useful to visiting teachers who support students with SEND needs also.
About The Voices Foundation
Voices Foundation has been working since 1993 to help schools, academies, Music Education Hubs and other partners across the UK to establish sustainable and effective music education in their settings. Everyone has a voice, and singing is a powerful way for children to become proficient musicians.
The Voices Foundation transform music in schools by developing teachers’ knowledge, skills and confidence in how to teach music effectively. Their model of teacher development supports schools to embed daily singing into school life – both through the curriculum and through extra-curricular choral enrichment. It aims to transform whole schools, teachers and children and is focussed on sustainable and integrated music education for all.
