Since 2020 we offer a special elective for (music) teachers: Vocal Leadership in school. You will learn how to apply the Vocal Leadership methods in your classroom! If you are ready for innovative, inspiring methods to activate your students, break the ice, train their skills and creativity and have them sing with all their heart – now is the time for you to join our program!

Why Vocal Leadership in School?

Vocal Leadership in School will stimulate shared leadership and initiative and provide a safe learning environment. It will also provide a clear framework for creation of new (vocal) music and stimulate the students’ ownership of the process and musical outcome. In addition to the musical goals, the course will improve the self-esteem and creativity of the kids in your classroom.

When you are a ‘VLIS’ student, you will get a chance to exchange ideas and repertoire with fellow students and teachers. You will also get individual feedback and coaching, using video material from your classroom.

Our methods can be used in combination with any style of (vocal) music.

Main teachers are Stephanie Kramer and Mathieu Vulto. Within the main subject curriculum we will provide games, tools and methods with a focus on didactical and pedagogical work.

For whom is ‘VLIS’?

Target group: professional music teachers in primary and secondary schools (4-18 yr), students who are currently studying ‘Music Education’, Pabo students and graduates. Primary school teachers make a huge difference and we want to offer them the chance to learn how to implement Vocal Leadership in their daily classes too.

Practical information VLIS 

The classes of our  ‘VLIS’ track take place in nine weekends, combined with the other Vocal Leadership weekends.
