The NYCOS musicianship programme is based on Kodály method and used in all our regional choirs, in schools across the UK and beyond. A series of structured progressive lessons and games lead the young person from Bronze level to the Gold award which is recognised as the equivalent of ABRSM Grade 5 Theory.
Delivered by NYCOS Education Director Lucinda Geoghegan, our training series provides guidance for adults teaching musicianship skills to young singers in schools, choirs and other settings. Every year around 70 of our choir members sit the Gold Award, and we are looking for people trained to deliver the programme at this level.
This day’s training is aimed at those who are already following the NYCOS Go for Silver musicianship programme, and takes us to a whole new level of more advanced musical concepts, providing material that stretches and challenges but still retains the sense of fun.
It will be a hands on, activity packed day, sure to give you lots of ideas to take away and use, even if you are not currently teaching Go for Gold.
