  • explore the methodologies of Kodály, Dalcroze and Orff
  • demonstrate how the use of cup songs, ukuleles, music technology and classroom jam can compliment the Primary Music Curriculum.
In addition to this, there will be an introductory session on ukuleles where teachers will get to try them out and see how they can be used in the classroom within music teaching, very hands on!

Testimonials from last year's course

This course was of excellent quality and delivered in a very well professional manner.  The activities and songs provided us with a repertoire of material to use throught the year. We also got plenty of opportunity to engage in activities and to practise songs so that we will be confident for delivery them ourselves in September.  I now feel more confident in teaching music literacy and integrating it with the other concepts.  Miriam introduced us to many new ideas for using technology in music lessons.


One of the best summer courses I have ever done in my 30 years doing courses.  Learned so much and have new skills and ideas that I will definitely use in the classroom. The week was fantastic, venue and food superb. Will be raving about this course and recommending it to others.  Thank you Miriam for sharing your expertise with us in such a positive and useful way.


Excellent course that surpassed all expectations.  Miriam brought her indepth knowledge and genuine love for music education to the course and supported us all.  The course is recommended to all teachers.


Absolutely fantastic course.  Not only has my knowledge of music improved hugely but my confidence has grown immensely.  Miriam is a wealth of knowlege and expertise and has delivered an amazing course which I have thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish,  I feel well equipped to plan for and teach a music lesson with confidence now.

The course was excellent.  Very thorough with loads resources and practical ideas for teaching music in the classroom.  Miriam’s enthusiasm for music made it all the more enjoyable.  


This course was fantastic - coming into it I really didn’t know any of the literacy aspects associated with music and I would have really just sang songs in my classroom.  I am leaving this course with so much confidence and I cannot wait to begin to teaching music properly with my class!


It was fantastic, thoroughly enjoyable and I achieved far more than I ever thought I would.  Thank you Miriam!


Miriam is a brilliant facilitator and I learned so much from her over the course of the week.  I really enjoyed and I will incorporate a lot of the material into my own teaching.  Thanks a mill Miriam!
