QCF BTEC Music Qualifications: Delivering Outstanding Programmes in your Centre

This course provides a practical insight into the setting up, delivery and assessment of the new QCF BTEC Music qualifications. The course will help you plan the delivery of your programme and understand how to implement the required quality assurance procedures.

Delegates will be given information about assessment requirements and practical guidance to help you develop effective and interesting assignments to motivate learners and maximise achievement.

Raising Attainment in the OCR GCSE Music examination through focused listening and appraising

in which students most often underachieve. It will examine the requirement for the appraisal of work in units 1 and 2 and will explore exactly what is needed to gain higher marks. Examples of pupils' work will be used to stimulate discussion.

The New Teacher of Music

This course is aimed at assisting new teachers of music in developing good practice in the classroom. Classroom management, behaviour management and lesson planning will be a particular focus of the day. Delegates will be given a range of resources that they can take back to the classroom and adapt into their lesson plans.
Examples of good practice at KS3 and KS4 will be explored and starting points for composition, performance and listening will also be discussed. A valuable day for all new practitioners in the music classroom.

Time Saving Preparation, Planning & Assessment (PPA) for Music Teachers: Some Simple Solutions Using ICT

When ICT is used effectively, it can have a dramatic effect on raising standards and expectations in music lessons. The problem is that the solutions are often prohibitively expensive. However, this need not necessarily be the case. All over the country, teachers are finding simple, cost-effective ICT solutions that really work in the classroom. David Ashworth has distilled the best of these ideas into a series of strategies that can be adapted for use in any teaching situation.

Using Assessment for Learning in Music to improve student performance and engagement

To enable gifted students to maximise their potential in music, it is important to specifically address their needs in schemes of work, differentiated lesson objectives, learning and teaching styles, extra-curricular provision and off site learning opportunities.

This course explores practical strategies for achieving these aims through the development of tools and techniques to engage, excite and motivate gifted students in music; and enable them to fully develop their potential as higher level learners in music.

Using Interactive Whiteboards Successfully in the Music Classroom

Delegates will gain an understanding of the possibilities of interactive whiteboards in the music classroom and how they can be best put to use to help create more lively and engaging lessons. Dedicated music software (including Cubase, Reason 2.5 and Sibelius) will be used to demonstrate the effective delivery of musical concepts and schemes of work across a range of topics.

What Shall we Sing?

This course will look at some of the best publications of recent years and examine ways of adapting the material to different school circumstances and the changing voices of KS3 pupils. Those needing more confidence in directing singing activities will expand their knowledge of how the voice works - and what teachers can do to improve their pupils' singing. Their will be opportunity for volunteers to try out their directing techniques on each other, using some of the songs introduced in the course.
