Choir Leader/helper On-line Courses
Our on-line courses are designed to help staff gain confidence, knowledge and new ideas in using song with the school curriculum. Each course is broken down into sections which provide a step by step guide for different song and dance exercises, ideas and technique.
The courses are designed to support staff in Scottish Primary Schools (based on CfE). The material can be adapted to be used in any learning environment by anyone wishing to boost their confidence and knowledge in delivering song and dance.
