Get them singing, keep them singing!

Courses for everyone leading singing in primary and secondary schools

abcd has recognised an ever-growing need for good quality vocal leadership training in schools and has developed a flexible range of courses for all those involved in leading young singers.

Our courses are aimed at enhancing the skills and confidence of all those leading singing in schools who wish to develop their knowledge, regardless of their experience, offering relevant Continuing Professional Development. Our training is non-prescriptive in approach with the emphasis on a supportive and encouraging environment.

We have a team of specialists who will share their vocal knowledge, music teaching skills and choral leadership expertise. All our practitioners are DBS checked.

Courses can be offered in partnership with local Music Hubs, Music Service providers, Academy Trusts, or through a single school or group of schools: do contact us to discuss your own needs. Download our leaflet here, or read on for more information.

Our tailor-made programme

We aim to be as flexible as possible to cater to the needs of individuals. We encourage teachers to develop their confidence, knowledge and skills through practical workshops including vocal technique and choral repertoire, and to share this with each other and their colleagues in the wider school community.
