Book Now for Music Connect CPD Opportunities 2018-19

Calling all classroom teachers and music specialists! Whether you are looking to share best practice with others, learn more about a specific aspect of music or just need a bit of help developing your music curriculum, we will have a workshop, event or training session for you. This year’s Music Connect programme includes in-school training that explores the brain-boosting power of music, a session with vocal specialist, Mark de Lisser, and a new event including Key Stage 1 pupils.

Thanks to funding from the Leeds Music Education Partnership, our training is free to Leeds schools and academies.

Check out our brochure for course and booking information. For more information on how you, or your school, can benefit from our Music Connect programme, please contact Paula.Brookes@leeds.gov.uk.

Ten Leeds’ Schools Given LMEP Music Champion Status

Ten Leeds’ schools were given Music Champion status by the Leeds Music Education Partnership (LMEP) last night in recognition of their ongoing commitment to music education.

The inaugural event, which took place at Pudsey Civic Hall, honoured schools for the work they are doing to nurture, develop and enable their pupils’ musical creativity.

The following schools were named as LMEP Music Champions and received a certificate, LMEP Music Champion logos, a banner, and a Music Mark membership: Woodkirk Academy; Roundhay All Through School; Co-Operative Academy Priesthorpe; Pool-in-Whafedale C.of E. Primary School; Primrose Lane Primary School; Five Lanes Primary School; Alwoodley Primary School; Carr Manor Primary School; Westerton Primary Academy; Broomfield South SILC.

The evening was a huge success! We would especially like to thank the talented young musicians who performed.
