Thinking Outside The Box: The 21st Century Music Teacher’s Toolkit

The 4th Annual RIAM Teaching Network Conference will take place on the 29th and 30th June 2017 in the Royal Irish Academy of Music. This year, the conference will focus on new approaches and resources available to teachers and on the importance of working with the needs of each individual student.  The closing address will be given, once again, by our Director, Deborah Kelleher, where she will reflect on the conference and the necessary skills of the 21st century music teacher.
