The National Association of Music Educators has released details of its annual conference.

Set to take place over Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th September at Yarnfield Park Conference Centre in Stone, Staffordshire, this year’s event has the theme of ‘musical pathways’ and will offer attendees the opportunity to take advantage of an exciting programme of training, development and debate.

The latter will no doubt be provoked by keynote speakers such as president of the ISME and chair of music education at the IOE, Professor Graham Welch; music animateur Richard McNicol; president of the Curriculum Foundation, Professor Mick Waters; and Ofsted national adviser for music, Mark Phillips; whilst the wide-ranging selection of workshops, covering all age groups – from the early years to KS4, will ensure there’ll be something educational for everyone. On top of this, research presentations will cast light on the long-term impact of music education, and transition.
