Practical Session 2 Update – Germany

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity.

Provided travel and COVID restrictions remain lifted, we will open a booking period from 11 August– 21 August September with exams to be held November - December. We will continue to keep this under review as our ability to accept bookings remains conditional on the restrictions continuing to be lifted. An update to Applicants will be announced as soon as we can and our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are looking forward to providing candidates with exams again and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.

Becoming a Better Music Teacher – your reviews

With over 20,000 enrolments since it began, this free online course is now available regularly and sits at the heart of our online teacher support and CPD programme.

Really helpful and enjoyable course. Some great ideas for future lessons, tips for self analysis and improvement, and a huge amount of well thought-out material. Also reassuring to see some techniques I already use too - helps to know you're on the right track sometimes too!

I really enjoyed the online course as it confirmed I’m doing a good job on so many levels but also gave me some angles to consider that I hadn’t before. The printable sheets I have used in lessons since too. Having online group chats with other teachers & reading their suggestions was nice too. I would recommend spending the time to do it whatever stage of teaching you’re at.

I was very keen to do this course and impressed with the amount of information available. You never stop learning and as a teacher it is important to keep up to date. It was also good to be able to see the comments from other teachers as sharing ideas is also important. I would thoroughly recommend it.

These are just some of the positive comments we’ve received about our course, Becoming a Better Music Teacher. Our next course begins on 10 August and you can register online now: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/becoming-a-better-music-teacher?utm_campaign=abrsm_becoming_a_better_music_teacher_june_2020&utm_medium=organic_blog&utm_source=blog
