Tobin Courses

Tobin Music System - Training - February half-term 2011
Saturday 19th to and including Monday 21st of February 2011
Northamptonshire UK
Lead by composer and teacher Richard Leigh
Hosted by Richard Tobin

A comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of the Tobin Music method for teaching the rudiments of meaningful music making in the classroom. Designed for specialist music teachers, classroom teachers (who may have no specific musical ability or background) and children's parents alike. This condensed three day course is also suitable for mature students who wish to develop their abilities, especially those who wish to learn how to compose, with the solid foundation and understanding of the principles and techniques a Tobin Music training provides.

The Modules 1, 2 and 3, as detailed in our Tobin Music Training Prospectus, will be covered in depth. In addition relevant sections from modules 4 and 5 will be introduced as applicable and as time allows subject to the groups speed of progress.

We will not be undertaking the Associate Examination at the conclusion of this five day course as the schedule will not allow sufficient time for the full study required or for the examination process. A certificate of attendance will be made available to all participants. We will be offering a follow-on course for those who wish to complete all elements of modules 4 and 5 along-with a revision of modules 1, 2 and 3 and an opportunity to fully study for and complete our Associate Examination.

This three-day course marks our further return to Tobin Music training following the passing of Candida Tobin, the system's creator. It is, we believe, competitively priced at (249+VAT) 298.80.

Included are all required course study workbooks, the 'First Steps' teacher's manual and sample classroom student materials plus a complementary copy of the CD Rom Musicolour (for use only on a PC with MS XP O/S or can run with MS Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate which include a Windows XP Mode). Morning and afternoon refreshments, tea, coffee, biscuits etc will be included. A light lunch may be practical to offer at a competitive additional charge subject to participant numbers and the local venue to be confirmed.

Each day will run from 9.30am for 10.00am variously to about 5.00pm

We require a 25% non-refundable deposit to be paid on course booking.
