Creative Leadership Skills Course

April 18, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

LSO Discovery’s Summer Course is focused on developing teacher’s creative leadership skills in music, building on existing musical skills and confidence.

As part of the project, you and your class will also attend LSO Discovery’s Key Stage 2 Schools Concert at the Barbican.
