Music Leaders Conference – 19 May 2023

ArtForms and Leeds Music Education Partnership (LMEP) are delighted to announce our first ever Primary Music Leaders Conference as part of Music Connect.  This is fully funded by LMEP so there is no charge to Leeds school.

Friday 19 May
Pudsey Civic Hall

Music Connect is our programme of curriculum support for Music Leaders in all Leeds schools.  The termly Music Leaders Network is an important part of Music Connect, bringing Music Leaders together from primary schools across Leeds to discuss the latest developments in Music Education.

Since the start of the pandemic our network meetings moved online, increasing attendance due to the convenience of accessing a twilight session from school or home.  However, we really value face to face events for Music Leaders to truly network which is why we have created the new conference.

This first Music Leaders Conference will include –

A Keynote Speech from Christopher Stevens – Ofsted’s Schools Specialist Adviser and Subject Lead for Music.

Followed by workshops from –
The Leeds International Piano Competition sharing the resources for their latest KS1 project – One Small Step.
Opera North on simple, effective composition techniques for teachers with little or no background in music.
Opera North on healthy use of the voice for KS1-2, how to warm up and when to push dynamic and repertoire selection.
Leeds Lieder on engaging with classical music including songs in foreign language and encouraging creative minds and imaginative listening.

Music Connect receives funding from LMEP which enables ArtForms to offer the programme to Leeds Schools and Academies at no charge.
