Figurenotes: Developing Your Practice
Thursdays 10th, 17th, & 24th November 2022, plus a 1:1 session the following week
For all music educators and practitioners. Invigorating CPD from the experts at Drake Music Scotland, the leading organisation in inclusive music. Incorporate Figurenotes into your music teaching practice and learn how everyone can play to their full potential.
Figurenotes is a notation that uses colour and shape to show pitch and rhythm, with a very clear progression towards conventional notation. People at different levels of reading can play together and progress at their own pace.
Training is designed for music teachers, practitioners, community musicians, music therapists, and instrumental teachers.
Our online training programme consists of three interactive Zoom sessions, plus a 1:1 session with course leaders to focus entirely on you and your work. You can attend from anywhere with an internet connection. You’ll also receive a discount code for Figurenotes resources, which you can use on anything from stickers to a software subscription.
Each interactive session lasts 2 hours. There will be opportunities to meet and collaborate with fellow music educators, to discuss your student’s specific needs, and workshop relevant solutions that you can take away with you. Alongside these interactive sessions, you’ll be guided through activities to help you apply Figurenotes to your own working practice.
The groups will be kept small to allow full participation from everyone, ensuring you get valuable feedback from your peers and the course leaders. You should finish this training with resources you can use straight away and a good idea of how to progress your work further.
