Free Music CPD training: Tuning in to Composing

Creating and Realising Musical Ideas with Kevin Hamel Cumbria Music Service as the lead for the Music Hub are offering practical half day music CPD sessions to introduce the new Tuned-in resources during March and April 2017. We are inviting schools in Cumbria to send one or two named delegates to a session at a nearby designated venue. Each session will take place from 1.10pm to 3.15pm. What’s the need for this?

Tuned-in, Cumbria’s online resource for primary schools, first introduced exciting, imaginative and practical starting points for composing in 2003. Over 2000 primary schools across Britain incorporated Tuned-in as ...
