Training

If you are interested to learn more about using Interactive Music-Making in your own work with young children, there are Interactive Music-Making Learning Programmes which you can join. 

 

"You will learn so much about yourself and how you teach and how the children learn and develop.”
Interactive Music-Maker

It is a unique learning programme comprising twelve weekly evening seminars, supported by a practical assignment.  It is primarily aimed at those working with infants under the age of 5 years, including early years' practitioners across all community sectors, as well as parents and carers, and musicians and music students who wish to apply their skills within a developmental framework. However, no musical background or particular musical skills are required to access the training, all that matters is an interest in child development and the desire to incorporate music into this.
 

"Interactive Music-Making gave me the confidence to use music and musical instruments to support children's learning and development, but also gave me a set of tools that are transferable in day to day practice.”  
Interactive Music-Maker 

Historically the course has been offered with the option to complete a written assignment to obtain credits from the University of Greenwich. However, with reduced funding available for training in many early years contexts, we have taken the decision to prioritise keeping the training costs to a minium.  The option of obtaining university credits for the learning on the course is therefore no longer available.  This has not affected the quality of the course content or the rigour of the learning opportunity it offers.

 

"The teaching team clearly remain passionate about their field of practice and provide a high standard of teaching and support for students."
Jan Webb, University of Greenwich

The next Interactive Music-Making course will start on 22nd September 2017 at Clyde Early Childhood Centre, Alverton Street, SE8 5NH. Tutorials will take place on Fridays from 12-3pm. The Course Fees are £675, with the option to apply for a subsidised place.  

 

Although our course fees are highly competitive, we are aware that Early Years settings are facing unprecedented challenges to funding.  In response to feedback from our network, we are delighted to have been able to offer a number of Interactive Music-Making Awards to help overcome this and see Interactive Music-Making reach more vulnerable young children and the people responsible for nurturing their early development.  Award Applications for 2017 have now closed, and we have approved 7 Awards!  If you're interested in applying next year, please get in touch.
