Twice a year Music Together runs teacher workshops in Tokyo. There is a 3 day workshop where people are learning to become Music Together teachers for the first time. As part of that we invite families to come and take part in free demo classes, to help illustrate to the trainees what a class is like. Again, many families from my center took part this week and I’m so pleased they enjoyed the experience.
Then on the 4th day, there is a Skills and Songs Workshop for existing teachers, and this is part of our ongoing training and development. Today’s topic was about advocating for early childhood music education in our centers and wider communities.
If you are not quite sure what Music Together is all about, watch this short video (with japanese subtitles) to see the impact and passion classes can have on the families that attend.
