CPD for Music Practitioners




Music4U is offering training opportunities to new and established members of our workforce in order to provide skills development for practitioners in our geographical area. This CPD programme also provides our music leaders with the chance to meet, share practice and better understand the wider work done by Music4U across the York and Humber Region. The training programme, which is to be delivered during Autumn 2014 by internationally-renowned community musician and trainer Phil Mullen, covers two key areas.

Leaving a Legacy
This strand of the CPD programme focuses on the ways in which community musicians can best support non-music-specialist staff working in the settings we visit (e.g. youth workers, teachers, carers, health workers). Through this training module, the Music4U workforce will explore different strategies for engaging supporting adults in musical activity and ensuring that they feel confident to continue a legacy of music-making once the initial musician-led project is finished.

Supporting Emerging Practitioners
This strand of our CPD programme offers advice and guidance for Music4U leaders wanting to incorporate opportunities for volunteers, trainees and assistant musicians within their project teams. This module enables experienced musicians to create safe, supported and practical learning environments for emerging practitioners, while also delivering top-quality music-making opportunities for children and young people.
