Tutor Training

In 2017 CMW were fortunate and very grateful to receive 4 years of funding from Paul Hamlyn Foundation to continue running and expand on our training project.

Throughout 2017 and 2018 we have been working hard to provide a quality service to new and experienced tutors, through Community Music Tutor training courses and Continued Professional Development days as well as placements and apprenticeships for newer tutors.

Are you a musician or music teacher interested in learning the skills to become a Community Music tutor?

Then our Community Music Tutor Training programme is perfect for you.

Upcoming Training

Long Course - October 2018 to March 2019 in North Wales (Llandudno)

We have been delivering this course for 25 years with trainees going on to work as tutors in a variety of settings throughout Wales.

Following on from this course, there are a limited number of paid placements to shadow one of our tutors, and gain real life experience of a project, to put what you’ve learnt into practice.

Past attendees agree that this course will benefit you at any stage of your music career:

“I initially thought of becoming a community music tutor as an enjoyable new way of making some extra cash when I wasn’t touring or recording, but doing the training course has opened the door to so much more. The satisfaction I get from really making a difference to people’s situations through music is immense. I was an experienced musician but certainly not an experienced workshop facilitator and the course gave me the skills and confidence needed to take music out to where it really matters.”

We are looking for music tutors of all levels; those with some experience, musicians new to the practice, those who are just curious about Community Music Tuition, and experienced tutors who may want to extend their portfolio or brush up on certain aspects of their work.

New or curious musicians can learn workshop delivery, tutoring skills and core principles of facilitating group workshops.
