“Since achieving the the DipLCM in Early Years Music summer 2014 we have had great pleasure in assessing Aintree School of Music Students. We have 5 teachers now using the Stave House method within our school and it is proving extremely rewarding for our young students. We are finding children are moving onto the LCM instrumental/singing grades extremely quickly as they have great understanding to confidently approach the syllabus.
Achieving the diploma was a great experience – I spend time talking with Philip Aldred (Chief Examiner for LCM) about our approach and he gave me some invaluable advice. The examination was very practical; we spent time reviewing a DVD I had prepared of a class and we reviewed how we could improve certain aspects of this. The scope of the examination allowed me to demonstrate different techniques we use for teaching early childhood music in addition to Stave House.
It is a privilege to assess for Stave House. It provides us with the opportunity to review and ensure consistency of our teachers work and also to give instant feedback.”
