ABRSM Music Teacher Conference 2019 – Malaysia

The ABRSM Music Teacher Conference was indeed an inspirational two days packed with practical ideas and fun filled activities for all who attended. Educators from Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea and China attended the conference.
Delivered by expert presenters from the music world, including ABRSM chief examiner, John Holmes, there were 23 different taster sessions from general music-making, creative way to develop musicianship skills, specialist sessions in piano, strings, voice and much more. We are confident that everyone went home with new ideas to help enrich their teachings and at the same time, developed new friendships with those who shares the love of music and teaching.
Thank you everyone for their support in this conference and we hope to see you all again in 2020’s conference!

We are happy to receive the support of MYOF in the delivery of our events and enrichment programmes. We share a similar vision, that is to inspire achievement in music, create greater access to music-making opportunities for young musicians, and help to develop a healthy music teaching community, where teachers feel supported, nurtured, and inspired. We are therefore very proud to work together with MYOF to support music education across the country and indeed the wider region.
