Talk Music Mark Annual Conference 2020

Music Mark Annual Conference 2020


We are excited to present a jam-packed virtual conference for our colleagues across the country and beyond on Friday 20th November.  After the success of our digital Summer Summit and CPD Day, we are pleased to announce our first ever online conference, Play On: the Music in Music Education.

The incredible Award Winning saxophonist and broadcaster YolanDa Brown will be our host of the live Main Channel. We now invite you to join YolanDa, the Music Mark team, and our talented speakers and panellists on the 20th November for a day of networking, learning and discussion – all from the comfort of your home or workplace.

We can now reveal that the brilliant Dr Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason and Dr Julia Jones, AKA Dr Rock will be our keynote speakers for this year’s conference.

Dr Kanneh-Mason is the mother of the seven extraordinarily talented Kanneh-Mason children and published author of ‘House of Music, Raising the Kanneh-Masons’. She willl be speaking about the role of the parent in supporting musical learning and progression. Doctor Rock, author of ‘The Music Diet’, is a lifelong advocate of the importance of music and the founder and CEO of Found in Music. She’ll be talking to us

about the transformational power of music and why music is such an important part of everyone’s life.

On our custom-built microsite, you’ll be able to watch and interact live with YolanDa, our keynote speakers and panellists; collaborate in a series of live Webinars; learn from a series of On Demand film resources; and peruse the Virtual Exhibition. We’ll be bringing you essential sessions on addressing diversity, practical CPD for teachers, discussions about how to address the challenges and opportunities that we face during the current period and much more.

Presentations from our virtual conference will remain online and accessible to delegates until the end of December, so you won’t feel that you’ve missed out on a relevant and interesting session due to scheduling clashes, or worry that you haven’t made it all the way around the exhibition. Log back in and you can catch every last minute of the conference in your own time.

Full programme coming soon.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext, delivered by MyClearText.
