Morley Announces New Course for Music Educators

Morley College London is delighted to announce that it will launch a new course, the Certificate for Music Educators (CME), in January 2019.

Validated by Trinity College London and specifically designed for music educators who work with children and young people, the course is a Level 4 foundation certificate that will be open to musicians who work for Music Education Hubs, community music leaders, and private music teachers.

The course has been created by CME London, a consortium partnership between Morley, a leading academic institution with a flagship music department; Sound Connections, a music education charity with a strategic role to support music education in London; and the Musicians’ Union (MU), a globally-respected organisation which represents over 30,000 musicians working in all sectors of the music business.

The one-year course will consist of six workshop days spread across the year, online support, observations, and a mentoring programme. Underpinning the programme will be an inclusive approach to music teaching and learning with children and young people. The course will be delivered by tutors from Morley and leading experts from Sound Connections and the MU.

Peter Collyer, Head of Music and Performing Arts at Morley College London, said, “this is an important initiative which will create an invaluable community of learning in Central London to enhance music education across the capital. Here at Morley we are very proud to be collaborating with Sound Connections and the MU in a way that will have a very positive impact on inclusion and participation, by supporting musicians in the development of the wider skills they need to be educators.”

Philip Flood, Director at Sound Connections, said, “inclusion is at the centre of everything we undertake at Sound Connections and so we are delighted to be part of a new training offer which puts musically inclusive practice at the very centre of its approach.”
