Singing in the Classroom

Singing in the Classroom

Our Professional Development workshops give you the confidence and tools to deliver music lessons in the classroom. Covering basic elements from the F-10 music curriculum, you will develop skills, ideas, and activities for immediate use. All events are designed for both generalist classroom teachers and music specialists.

Why sing? Apart from being great fun, it connects us to others, and the voice is the most accessible and fundamental of all instruments! Join us for an interactive session of singing and music-making for the primary classroom.  

At this workshop you will:

  • explore different songs and repertoire for classroom use
  • learn a variety of warm up and song teaching ideas and techniques 
  • look at strategies to create a simple arrangement for a song 
  • scaffold the activities above from simple to more complex 

Who should attend: 

These events are designed for both generalist classroom teachers and music specialists.

While our resources and PD are primarily aimed at Primary School teachers, all are welcome, including:

  • early childhood teachers
  • primary school teachers
  • secondary teachers
  • pre-service teachers
  • school leaders with an interest in music education for primary school students
