What members have to say about the
Crescendo Music Education Membership...

Carolyn Gunston

"I use many of the resources from Crescendo in my teaching. It is wonderful to know that I have a place that I can easily go to if I need any support or ideas.

I would highly recommend becoming a member of Crescendo Music to all music teachers!"

Cathy Cheel

"I attended a number of workshops before I became a Crescendo member but only after I took up membership, did I realise how much information and support I had been missing out on in previous years. 

I now feel that any problem I have or any time I am looking for fresh ideas, I can look back on newsletters, email Debbie or attend a workship and I’ll always have support. It's good to connect with other music teachers, share ideas and find solutions to some of the problems we face at school.

Crescendo provides a great sense of community which is invaluable amongst specialist teachers."

Anne O’Regan

"Being the only primary music teacher at my school means that I have no colleagues with which I can discuss planning, resources and assessment. I felt professionally

I feel much more organised and supported in my teaching role [now]. I think feedback to students is more authentic and the criteria for tasks is much clearer. My lessons are
more engaging with the resources I have gathered at workshops and through the [membership] website."
