Teacher Training Course Muziek als Vak in 2020-2021
The Muziek als Vak course will again be offered the coming academic year – taking place on 8 Saturdays (1 every month) and study weekends in November and April.
"At Muziek als Vak, they offer you different work forms and ideas through which you can approach at a song or a piece of music. The possibilities to vary are endless! This, together with learning rhythm language and relative solmisation, inspired me a lot! It further shaped my thinking about teaching music and opened a whole new musical world for me! "
- Judith van Vliet, participant Muziek als Vak 2019-2020
Because of COVID-19 related regulations, the study days in 2020 (September-December) will take place online. We will offer various webinars, lectures and classes, both with our own team of teachers, and with international guest teachers. From January 2021 onwards, we hope to offer live gatherings in the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague*. This, of course, depends on regulations from the government, and can only happen in a way that is safe for all involved.
