Members of the BKA are key to our organisation. They support us in so many ways- financially as well as helping us spread the word about the amazing things the BKA are doing.

One of the many benefits to being a BKA Member is our Members' Days- free events for members, full of opportunities and training by our Tutor Teams. 

This year we're offering two locations- one in Huddersfield and one in London- so more Members can access the days. We'll be linking virtually with each location so we still get to see and hear each other!

What should I expect from Members' Day?

In London:

Michael Spence will encourage us to be ‘Kodály smart’ in our approach to teaching choral repertoire and later to a Kodály way into ‘pop’ music, covering some improvisational elements and moving on to chord analysis and vocal harmonisation ‘pathways’.

Chris Andrews will introduce us to songs and games for the classroom we may not know and probably do not know! Be ready to jump into action!

Esther Hargittai will lead us in learning new material, singing and moving with our peers in the holistic, logical and joyful Kodály way.

There will be the opportunity to browse and buy pre-loved Kodály resources – with proceeds going to the BKA and to support Afghan and Ukrainian refugees via UNHCR.

Do bring your own pre-loved items if you can to support the relief effort. Thank you.

In Huddersfield:

Allan Hubert-Wright will recharge our voices with vocal exercises; 

Lynne Clark will look at how singing leads us into listening; 

Lucinda Geoghegan will explore Singing Games & Rhymes, providing that much-needed connection we have missed over the past two years.

The wonderful Margaret Oliver, with the BKA Bookshop, will be available.

Each day will end with singing together, and a Q&A about Summer School 2022!

Who can attend?

It is free to all our lovely BKA Members! We'd love to welcome friends too - so bring along friends and colleagues.

How much does it cost? 

The days are completely free for our Members! 

If a Member would like to bring a friend, it will only cost £10 for the whole day. Tickets for friends can only be booked by a Member- so make sure you ask all your singing friends if they'd like to come! The more the merrier!

Don't know a Member? Still want to come? You can join as a Member for the remaining 3 months of this year and get free access to our Members' Day PLUS early booking on courses PLUS access to the Member's section of our website! Just follow this link to join.
