Charanga and Musical Futures International have announced an exciting new partnership to support and extend the skills of classroom and instrumental teachers across the globe.
Musika Sama-sama (Music Together), a unique 2-day conference at the British School Manila on 17–18th January 2020, will be the first professional development event co-organised by the companies. The programme comprises practical workshops designed for primary, secondary and tertiary music educators, and sessions for non-specialist primary teachers.
“Bringing people together is a vital part of developing sustainable and engaging professional development opportunities for music teachers,” Anna Gower, Head of Training and Development at Musical Futures International, explained. “So it’s really exciting to be working with our friends at Charanga on this new opportunity for music educators to learn, play, network and explore ideas and resources that can really make a difference to their students.”
Mark Burke, Founder and Director of Charanga, described the partnership as ‘a natural fit’: “We both share a passion for removing barriers to young people’s engagement with music-making and understand what it takes to work side-by-side with teachers to make change happen on a large scale,” he said.
Teachers can attend both conference days, with all resources, lunch and refreshments included, for just £275 if booking before 16th December 2019.
