Free CPD Training for School Teachers

Free CPD Training for school teachers!

Are you a teacher working in Tower Hamlets or in a neighbouring borough? London Youth Choirs (LYC) would like to invite you to a FREE, FUN & FRIENDLY training session covering:

  • The multiple benefits to students of singing: for their health and wellbeing and educational attainment
  • How to set up a school choir and maintain student interest and numbers
  • How to build your confidence as a singing leader at your school

Both primary and secondary school teachers are welcome. No experience of choir or workshop leading is necessary.

His choirs have toured with Hugh Jackman, Take That, Lulu; performed with George Ezra, Alexandra Burke, Freya Ridings, on all TV channels, for HRH Prince Charles and welcomed the guests for Michelle Obama's exclusive UK book launch.  Nav's experience and social justice work has led him to both be invited onto the council of the Association of British Choral Directors (ABCD) and to join a 10 person consultancy panel to advise Hal Leonard Europe on their Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policies.
