School support and CPD

School Support

We offer schools the opportunity to work 1-1 with a specialist on the development of music in your school. Our school support specialists can provide consultancy on curriculum design, help you to devise plans for development or deliver whole staff training opportunities to upskill your team!  

We can work with schools to implement areas of the National Plan for Music Education as well as other guidance such as Model Music Curriculum.  

We have worked with a number of schools to improve their provision and are excited to work with schools in a bespoke way to help them develop music in line with their vision for the school.

  Support rates:

  • Hourly consultancy rate: £60
  • Date rate (6 hours): £300
  • Staff training (1.5 hours): £115

Liv was a fantastic help and it was so encouraging listen to her ideas and expertise in class teaching. I felt she knew exactly what I needed, and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Thank you.

I was feeling low energy as the term 2 comes to an end, but this was the positive boost I was needing to spur me on through into Term 3. Thank you so much.
