Today’s post highlights a new scheme brought to my attention by my colleague and fellow adjudicator, Liz Childs. Liz is a flautist, teacher, and an adjudicator for the British and International Federation of Festivals. She is a passionate educator, and feels strongly about the need for teachers and schools to engage with adjudicators for mutual benefit. The main aim of this forum, is to encourage music teachers and their schools to become involved with the Festival Movement, granting the opportunity to find out about festivals in their local communities. The forum is a way of seeking out information, focusing on all aspects of the festival experience for the performer.
The benefits of music education, and more specifically, playing an instrument, have been well documented, particularly recently in the National press, and a forum such as this, could provide the ideal vehicle for teachers and adjudicators to mutually help and assist young musicians.
