This can operate both therapeutically and educationally\, but as a field has its own rich history and culture. This course focuses on working with Disabled People and young people with Special Educational needs. We’ll explore some of the disabling barriers these groups face\, as well as physical\, cognitive and learning challenges\, and how creative and participatory music sessions can benefit them. \nCommunity Musicians work with both young and older people who face a wide range of life challenges – using music as an effective tool to combat illness\, disability\, isolation\, education difficulties\, behavioural problems\, offending and many more issues. Taking part in meaningful group activities is increasingly evidenced as a positive and productive way to overcome such challenges. This workshop investigates how to best facilitate meaningful and effective music experiences for Disabled People and young people with Special Educational needs. This includes those who experience: \n\nLearning difficulties\nAutism/Asperger’s\nPhysical Disabilities\nCognitive and sensory difficulties\nMental health needs\n\nCommunity Music Practice can take many forms – singing in a choir\, making beats on a computer\, improvising as a group\, exploring technology as a means to self-expression\, songwriting\, soundscape work and more. Each different way of engaging with music can have personal\, social and collective benefits. To gain the greatest benefit Community Music interactions need to be led by people with a range of musical\, communication and other skills\, as well as an understanding of the context \, and the people you are working with. This workshop will enable you to develop your own skill set\, as well as providing a range of activity tools that can facilitate Disabled People and young people with Special Educational needs who face challenging circumstances to engage in creative and participatory music activities. \nThis course is ideal for you if you are: \n\nyouth worker who would like to develop this skillset\nmusic leader already practising in the field\nmusic service tutor\nmusic teacher\nmusician who would like to explore this field\nteaching assistant\na teaching assistant or teacher working in a Care environment\nparent/carer\n\nNo formal skill level is required but to gain the most out of this workshop\, we would expect you to possess a good level of either formal or informal music experience. \nWhy study this course? \n\nYou will take part in a range of exciting and engaging music making activities that you can take into your own practice.\nYou will have a chance to develop your own musical leadership skills in a safe supported environment.\nYou will learn about some of the physical\, cognitive and learning challenges that young people may face\, what defines some of these conditions\, how they impact on young people.\nYou’ll learn how to plan and deliver creative music sessions to bring maximum benefits to participants regardless of their abilities.\nWe will explore how we can measure the effectiveness of musical interactions in order to maximise their benefits and enable sustained work.\n\nAfter taking this course you may be interested in the second part of our Community Music Practice series: Community Music Practice: Reaching Out to Young People \nBooking information\nDisability Support \nWe are committed to providing reasonable teaching adjustments for students with disabilities that may impact on their learning experience.

\nWe are delighted to announce that for our 2019 season we will be partnered by the world-famous Tippett String Quartet who will join with international violinist Ishani Bhoola and accompanist Jennifer Carter in providing a week of world-class instruction. \nThis is your chance to join like-minded enthusiasts for one-on-one mentoring with the world-renowned Tippett String Quartet during a week-long break in France’s idyllic Dordogne. \nTo top it all you can experience the thrill of being a professional musician by playing with them in a public concert at the end of your stay. \nThe IIMA has teamed up with the Tippett to provide a complete package that includes private accommodation in beautiful French homes\, dining in fine restaurants specialising in the famous gastronomy of the Perigord region and a week in the company of quartet members. \nYou will be able to get to know some of the world’s greatest string players in an informal setting\, take part in individual and group tuition including chamber orchestra participation and rehearsing for a live concert\, as well as enjoy wine-tasting trips to local vineyards and spectacular castles and bastide villages. \nThe Academy is set in the exceptional medieval village of Issigeac\, just 20 minutes south of the town of Bergerac and budget airline links to the UK. \nWith its renaissance Bishop’s Palace\, 12th Century stone ramparts and beautifully preserved medieval houses\, Issigeac is a rare gem within the area of the Bergerac appellation vineyards. \nDuring the week the Tippet Quartet will be playing four public concerts in Issigeac’s municipal centre. On the final night the ensemble will stage a free concert open to the public with the participation of IIMA guests wishing to take part. \nWonderful Company  – Spectacular Music – Fantastic Foie Gras – Succulent Monbazillac Wines – be ready for a heady mix! \nWho it’s for\nThose wishing to take part should have attained Grade 5 or above in their respective instrument. \n\nAbout Issigeac\nIssigeac is an historic commune with around 400 permanent residents that dates back to Roman times\, making it among the oldest continually occupied sites in the Perigord. \nFortified in medieval times and taking the circular shape it does today\, the village was under English rule during the 100 years war and afterwards owned by the Bishop of Sarlat\, who made it his summer residence. \nThe splendid Bishop’s palace and Church of St Felicien – principal Academy venues – along with the plethora of half-timbered houses that make up the body of the village\, date from this time. \nAfter several centuries as an important if small ecclesiastical community\, Issigeac is now thriving and developing into one of the gems of Southern Perigord. \nIt can thank its period in the doldrums for the fact that has survived into the 21st century very little changed in either structure or character from how it was in medieval times. \nIts Sunday market – which has been held continually since the 13th Century – is one of the wonders of the region attracting French and overseas visitors from far and wide. \nWhile many new enterprises have taken root here\, including artists studios\, antique shops and artisans workshops the village is still a traditional French one\, with a full range of small shops providing good and services for everyday life. \nWith four main restaurants\, four cafés and a bustling bar Issigeac is also probably the best-catered village for gastronomy in the area. \nTravelling to Issigeac\nIssigeac is just 15 minutes from Bergerac airport with daily flights to the UK\, other European destinations and Paris. It sits on the banks of the small river\, the Banège\, in the southern sector of Bergerac’s world famous vineyards; all set in the wonderful scenery which French writer Stendhal described as the ‘Tuscany of France.’ \nCourse leaders/performers\nThe Issigeac International Music Academy (IIMA) offers the commune of Issigeac and indeed the whole of the Southern Perigord a wonderful opportunity to invite some of the world’s leading classical musicians and music teachers to our community. \n\nIshani Bhoola\nJennifer Carter\nBozidar Vukotic\nJohn Mills\nJeremy Isaac\nLydia Lowndes-Northcott\n\nRegistration and fees\nThe all-inclusive fee for the 2019 IIMA Summer Academy is £995.00. \nThe IIMA fee includes: \n\nQuality master class tuition in spectacular environment\nFocus on professional performance\nChamber music tuition\nThree concerts performed by the Tippett Quartet\nOne public concert performed by students and Academy members\nFully coached rehearsal days\nBoard and lodging\n\nNB: Those wishing to take part should have attained Grade 5 or above in their respective instrument. \n URL:https://musiceducation.global/event/issigeac-international-music-academy/ LOCATION:Issigeac\, Issigeac\, France CATEGORIES:International,Summer schools ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://musiceducation.global/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Tippet-String-Quartet-1440x720.jpg GEO:44.730741;0.607473 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID="Europe/London":20190618T190000 DTEND;TZID="Europe/London":20190618T210000 DTSTAMP:20190721T144857 CREATED:20190414T172229Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190529T135908Z UID:41084-1560884400-1560891600@musiceducation.global SUMMARY:Chetham's School of Music 6th form opening evening DESCRIPTION:This summer\, Chetham’s School of Music is opening its doors for three new Open events aimed at young musicians considering applications to Chetham’s in 2019 and beyond. \nEach session lasts two hours\, and is based around the interests of different age groups within the school. \n URL:https://musiceducation.global/event/chethams-school-of-music-6th-form-opening-evening/ LOCATION:Chetham’s School of Music\, Long Millgate\, Manchester\, M3 1SB\, United Kingdom CATEGORIES:Open days,UK and Ireland ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://musiceducation.global/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Sixth-Form-opening-evening.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID="Europe/London":20190622T100000 DTEND;TZID="Europe/London":20190622T120000 DTSTAMP:20190721T144857 CREATED:20190415T123948Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190529T135907Z UID:41119-1561197600-1561204800@musiceducation.global SUMMARY:Teacher Workshop: Discover Adult Piano Adventures DESCRIPTION:Discover the fresh new look of Adult Piano Adventures\, with online support\, and a new supplementary repertoire library.

AOTOS conference programmes offer unique benefits. \n\nInsight into different approaches from some of the most distinguished teachers of singing worldwide\nUnderstanding the demands of the profession\nPresentations by international teachers\, artists and voice specialists of all kinds\nMeeting colleagues from all over the world\nDiscovering opportunities to develop your career\n\nConferences also provide a very valuable opportunity – especially for new and less experienced teachers – to share ideas and experiences\, and to encourage each other. Indeed one of the original raisons d’être of AOTOS when it was founded by Dr W.H. Swinburne in 1975 was to address the problem of lack of communication between singing teachers. He is quoted as having said: ‘Why do instrumentalists talk about their techniques\, and singers have their own methods\, never discussing anything?’. We hope that over the years AOTOS has helped in some way to dispel this attitude. \nAt our conferences we listen to talks from very learned people in our professions. We also have the opportunity to bring our own difficulties and questions\, and to seek comments on these from our colleagues either in open forum\, or simply by just chatting amongst ourselves in the extended meal breaks\, and – in the case of the summer conference – in the evenings\, often in the bar \nSummer Conference 2019: Refresh\, recharge\, revitalise!\nWays to move forward with your singing teaching \n \nAbout the event\nWhat does it mean to be a singing teacher in 2019?

In its shadow are the historic buildings of Sherborne School – a prestigious boys’ boarding school with a strong choral tradition\, playing a full part in the liturgical life of the church. \nThat makes it the perfect setting for a summer choral school that develops the talents of boys and girls between the ages of 15 and 18. We attract a diverse group of attendees from a range of backgrounds\, distinguished by their vocal excellence. \nSherborne is easily accessible by rail or road\, with good links to London\, the South West and the North of England. It is a town of modest proportions\, but by no means lacking in vibrancy. Thanks to the presence of two high-profile boarding schools\, it is a place of intellectual energy and cultural stimulation. Its pretty high street is close to the School campus\, meaning ready access to cafés\, shops and supermarkets. \nChoral Course attendees stay in Sherborne School accommodation\, with girls and boys in separate houses. Everyone eats in the excellent School refectory and enjoys access to our brilliant School facilities. A pastoral team is on hand throughout the week\, providing care and support at every turn. \nSherborne is a wonderful home from home\, boasting stunning architecture\, a tangible sense of history\, and a warm\, friendly atmosphere. Along with the Abbey and our own School Chapel\, there are few finer locations to expand your horizons and prepare for your future as a singer. \nAbout our team\nA high-profile team of professional musicians and educators delivers the Sherborne Choral Course. Here is a brief guide to the main tutors. \nJohn Rutter CBE\nJohn Rutter is one of the best-known English composers and conductors of his generation. His music is characterised by beautiful melodies that resonate with audiences around the world. \nLonger compositions include Requiem\, Gloria\, Mass of the Children and The Gift of Life\, while his shorter pieces are justifiably famous. Many will be familiar with anthems such as For the Beauty of the Earth\, All Things Bright and Beautiful and The Lord Bless You and Keep You both from their extensive radio play and from performing them in concert. \nJohn was Director of Music at Clare College\, Cambridge\, and leads the Cambridge Singers\, who have made more than 50 recordings since the 1980s. He established the Collegium record label in 1983. \nJohn will be sharing a new composition at the Sherborne Choral Course\, leading the choir through rehearsals and conducting them during evensong in Sherborne Abbey. \nBob Chilcott\nBob Chilcott has been described by The Observer as a “contemporary hero of choral music” – an epithet that neatly captures his contribution to the British choral tradition. Bob was a choral scholar at King’s College\, Cambridge and performed with the highly popular King’s Singers for 12 years. \nWith a particular reputation for compositions that engage young people\, Bob is renowned for his friendly style. His St John Passion\, Salisbury Vespers and Requiem are well known to many\, both as recordings and performance pieces. They speak of his immersion in the Church’s choral tradition\, but Bob’s expertise does not end there. As Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Singers since 2002\, he knows how to bring the best out of any choir\, whether they are preparing for a great liturgical act or to perform a piece of secular music in concert. \nJames Henderson\nAs Director of Music at Sherborne School\, James oversees the Sherborne Choral Course and is a lead tutor and conductor. \nAn experienced tutor on similar courses elsewhere in the country\, James is steeped in the Church’s musical traditions. He regularly conducts Sherborne’s choir as it leads services in the Abbey\, and works closely with the clergy and staff team to ensure that the music is of the very highest quality. \nJames came to Sherborne in 2005 having previously been involved with the music at Christ Church Cathedral\, Oxford\, and having been Director of Music at Portsmouth Grammar School where he worked with the London Mozart Players in the Portsmouth Festivities. Thanks in no small part to his visionary leadership of the department\, Sherborne is widely recognised as one of the country’s foremost independent schools for Music. Indeed\, The Week named the School ‘Best for Music’ in its Independent Schools Guide – a well-deserved accolade that underscores the credentials of its Choral Course. \nRegistration and fees\nVisit the Sherborne Choral Course website to register online. \nPlaces cost £650\, including all accommodation and meals.  \n\nAssistance with costs is available on application and is means tested.\nBook by 1st January 2019 for a 25% discount reducing the cost to £487.50.\n\n URL:https://musiceducation.global/event/sherborne-choral-course/ LOCATION:Sherborne School\, Abbey Road\, Sherborne\, Dorset\, United Kingdom CATEGORIES:International,Summer schools,UK and Ireland ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://musiceducation.global/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Sherborne-choral-singers-1440x720.jpg ORGANIZER;CN="Sherborne%20School":MAILTO:choralcourse@sherborne.org GEO:50.9477108;-2.5174516 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=Sherborne School Abbey Road Sherborne Dorset United Kingdom;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=Abbey Road:geo:-2.5174516,50.9477108 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID="Europe/London":20190721T210000 DTEND;TZID="Europe/London":20190803T170000 DTSTAMP:20190721T144857 CREATED:20190424T162219Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190529T135904Z UID:41805-1563742800-1564851600@musiceducation.global SUMMARY:Oxford Cello School 2019 DESCRIPTION:About the course\nThe Oxford Cello School (OCS) is an international cello and double bass summer school founded in 1980 by Marianne Gottfeldt to provide a unique opportunity for cellists and bassists to focus on their instrument and receive the very best tuition in an intensive environment. \nThis remains our philosophy.
