We’re passionate about investing in our teachers at Kent Music.
That’s why we’ve been so excited to be working with them on our new Virtual Learning Environment, Bridge. This new virtual CPD (Continuing Professional Development) resource, spearheaded by our brilliant CPD Manager Liv Edwards, has provided our staff with an invaluable opportunity to engage with learning virtually.
Since launching in early autumn 2020, our teachers have been working hard at various courses on the platform, but particularly our MusicPlus teachers. MusicPlus is Kent’s provision towards whole class music education for Key Stage 2 pupils, providing instrumental tuition and musical instruments for whole classes throughout the county.
While whole class learning hasn’t been possible this term, we’ve focused on providing our MusicPlus teachers with high quality CPD courses. This term, we’ve given our staff the opportunity to share best practice and discuss themes around music education.
So far, we’ve gone back to basics, discussing the fundamentals of music and creativity. With such a diverse group of highly trained musicians and educators, it’s been fascinating to hear their responses, and see how our teachers themselves learn!
We’ve collected some of the best responses to our impetus questions from the MusicPlus courses. We hope they’ll get you talking, debating, discussing, and (of course) singing and playing, just like we did!
We love the variety of responses, and each of them as valid as the other!
Musicality is different for everyone, but with a combination of hard work, passion, practise, and a good teacher, however you approach it you’ll make beautiful music.
