Training for Music Practitioners

NYCOS works in a variety of ways to support music education at all levels, providing training for music practitioners, specialist and non specialist teachers at primary, secondary , further and higher education levels.

Since July 2020, we have been running online courses in Musicianship and Methodology and engaged with musicians, class teachers, students and specialists from 23 countries across the world as well as many, many people in the UK. These classes are accredited in partnership with British Kodály Academy through CPD UK, however, the assessments are optional.

As well as offering single training days on our Bronze, Silver and Gold musicianship programme, the annual summer school in Edinburgh (and more recently online in 2020 and 2021) offers the opportunity to teachers to have an intensive week of training in the Kodály approach, providing them with inspiration and experience to improve the music provision in their own settings. NYCOS offers the opportunity to sit accredited modules.

NYCOS is regularly called on to provide training for local authority partners and non formal sector organisations such as Sistema Scotland, Scottish Book Trust and Live Music Now.
