In Service Education and Training Days for Teachers

StatuesThe focus can be on African Music, Dance, Storytelling or all three together.

Noah presents and shares with teachers, an African way of making or responding to these various art forms.

The objective is to inspire the development of attitudes and materials linking specific aspects of these art forms to the requirements of the National Curriculum.

  • Use sound effects in storytelling & drama

  • Develop follow-up activities


Comments about INSET Training and Talks:

“I found the session both inspirational and educational, and I’m sure those (teachers) present felt the same…and …benefit from the event.

Kevin Rogers, Dorset Music Advisor.

“As a music teacher, … these activities are … a brilliant opportunity for music teachers to watch their own pupils in action … and also a chance to revitalise some of the reasons why we became music teachers in the first place.”

Alistair Hume, Music Coordinator, St Michael’s Middle School, Wimborne, Dorset.
