Hello Figurenoters!

We are thrilled to announce the programme for our upcoming Music Teachers Toolbox on Saturday 23rd March 2019.

First Figurenotes & BBC Ten Pieces 

This time around, we will be focusing on Creative Sessions involving Early Years/Primary/ASN and how best to support your participants brand new to Figurenotes in a variety of engaging ways. We will also be incorporating pieces from our collaboration with the fantastic BBC Ten Pieces.

Why not take a look at some of the resources BBC Ten Pieces have available online.

Although there will be an emphasis on Early Years and Primary, there will be something for everyone regardless of the age and stage of your users. If you have been to our training days before, or your participants are older, do not fret. We will provide a fun filled day of activities where you will learn news skills and refresh your current knowledge, providing you with new and exciting ways to incorporate Figurenotes into your setting.

Our training day will also include networking activities and a help desk where you can speak to an experienced member of the Drake Music Scotland team. You can seek advice on all things Figurenotes, technology, progression and general teaching advice.

And if that is not enough to entice you to book your place on our next Music Teachers Toolbox, maybe this will;

*Special Offer* – Purchase Our Upcoming Music Teachers Toolbox Training Day and Receive Our First Figurenotes Pack for only £10.00!!!
