About the event
Music for Good, Sing Up Foundation and Sing Up are running a pilot online course in Spring 2023 on developing trauma and mental health-informed singing practice. The course will run fortnightly for a total of 5 sessions that will be 2.5 hours each. There will also be a follow-up feedback and development session. The sessions will take place in the evenings (GMT) and the course is open to international participants as well as those from the UK.
The pilot will lead into a more developed training package with resources to be launched later in 2023. This is a unique experience for participants to be involved in the development of a brand new and innovative training course.

- Provide detailed feedback to Music for Good, Sing Up Foundation and Sing Up on the course to help shape and develop it

Based on feedback so far, this course will deliver a combination of theory and practice, with the aim of providing a solid foundation of knowledge and understanding from which to develop professional practice. It will be interactive, practical and there will be valuable opportunities for discussion and sharing amongst peers on the course. The content is driven by research and evidence and the development of the course and resources has been part-funded by Youth Music.
This pilot course will be delivered online by Emily Foulkes. Emily is an experienced practitioner, researcher and trainer with a specialism in Trauma and Mental Health. She has provided training for over 100 singing practitioners, across the UK and beyond and has delivered talks and presentations at numerous conferences and events, including for the Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health, AOTOS (Association of Teachers of Singing), Music Education Hubs, The TRUIMPH Network and for Voice Study Centre.
