Keeping Children Safe in Music is the latest in the EduCare's series of distance learning courses on child protection. The training programme uses short films to show a variety of good and bad practice examples, which will be available to watch online. It will help anyone teaching music to children gain a better understanding of their child protection responsibilities, and avoid situations that could lead to accusations of misconduct.

Notes:

I am incredibly excited to be offering Kodály-based Music Kindergarten and General Musicianship classes in Medway once again.

I offer small, structured music classes for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers, as well a group for home educated children up to the age of ten. Musical play - singing, dancing and listening - gently develops the core skills of musicianship - pulse, pitch and rhythm - in a relaxed learning environment.

The curriculum is based on the teachings of Hungarian musician and educator Zoltán Kodály (the Kodály Method).

Studies have shown that the Kodály Method improves intonation, rhythm skills, music literacy, and the ability to sing in increasingly complex parts. Outside of music, it has been shown to improve perceptual functioning, concept formation, motor skills, and performance in other academic areas such as reading and mathematics.

Piano students benefit from a similarly 'holistic' approach to teaching, building on the Kodály Method, but also using more traditional teaching techniques. ABRSM (Associated Board) exams are offered to pupils who wish to use this system, but this is by no means expected or required of pupils.
