Teachers’ Weekend, Cardiff

I have just spent a fruitful three days supporting the team of the MU Education Dept at the Musicians’ Union Teachers’ Continuing Professional Development weekend in Cardiff. Approximately one hundred delegates from all over the UK gathered at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama to hear from major names in the teaching world, plus attend an impressive number of workshops and networking opportunities. The MU team, led by Diane Widdison, and consisting of Fran Hanley, Bindu Paul and Florence Morris, ensured the delegates went away heartened by the Union’s commitment to teachers and informed by the knowledgeable speakers and presenters.
