Teacher training abroad is organised on an individual basis and requires good local support to help organise accommodation and local transport.

Workshops abroad have been delivered in Kenya, Uganda, Malta, South Africa and Pakistan, with more planned for China and Poland as well as return visits to previously visited countries.

There is a small fund that can give financial support for travel expenses in certain circumstances.  For details of how to donate to this fund and support teacher training oversees click here

Also highly recommended are teacher training courses for early years and primary classroom teachers and piano teachers provided by Nikhil Dally of Stepping Notes Music. Nikhil is a highly respected Kodály and Dalcroze practitioner with many years’ experience delivering music lessons for early years and primary children as well as taking a somewhat different and very successful approach to teaching piano musicianship.
