Junior School Parent Workshop – Developing Children’s Music in the Home
Date: Thursday 19 January 2017
Time: 8:30am – 9:30am
Location: Room M3
Music at Dulwich College Beijing is one of our four pillars and one of the many curriculum areas we are passionate about. As a school, we are fortunate to have such a talented group of students and staff to develop a rich Music curriculum and extra-curricular programme; this was evident at the recent Dulwich Christmas concert, where a total of 90 Junior School students took part. This workshop is designed to share with you the importance of Music in a child’s development, and how the Music Curriculum at Dulwich College Beijing is structured, including what we teach, how lessons are delivered and the many extra-curricular activities that are on offer to your child(ren). It will also provide some ideas for things that you can do as parents at home to help foster a love of Music in your child and to develop their Music skills further. Please email Nina Haynes email@example.com directly, if you are interested in attending this workshop.
