More about the event….


The World Voice programme aims to ensure that, through training, collaboration and resources, all young people have the opportunity to use singing to develop their musicality and support wider learning.


This UK event will provide an introduction to, and update on, the World Voice Programme.  Attendees – including classroom teachers with a range of specialisms  and other organisations involved in education and music education – will have the opportunity to look at the aims of the programme and its resources, as well as the current and planned work overseas.  There will also be discussion about the development of resources and a training programme to support teachers in making the most of the opportunities World Voice can provide for the Connecting Classrooms and the International Schools Award programmes.
