Workshop Series 2022 (3 Nights Pass)
2022 saw our return from lockdowns and back to our teaching studios and concert stages. And as we navigated new and old norms, the Academy has been exploring hybrid approaches to bringing the magic of music to audiences across Southeast Asia, and continuing to bring instructors from near and far into our online community. In bidding farewell to the year, we fare more than well in a workshop series for three evenings, December 12-14. From tips to success in competitions to unlocking skills of stylistic awareness, the intersections of Dalcroze and Kodály to public speaking in concerts, and an evening hosted in Mandarin (2nd Night), the Academy invites you to join in our community, and our conversations.
FOR SINGAPOREANS ONLY
This workshop series is supported under UTAP for 50% course fee support.
National Instructors and Coaches Association (NICA) was formed by the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) to be the collective voice to support freelance coaches and instructors from sports, outdoor learning and adventure, visual and performing arts, fitness, wellness, and enrichment, to strengthen skills, standards and opportunities.
In supporting NICA members with skills deepening programmes at the Academy, NICA members enjoy lower course and conference fees through the Union Training Assistance Programme (UTAP) which provides 50% subsidy of the balance unfunded course/conference fee, up to $250 or $500 (for NTUC union members aged 40 and above).*
If you wish to be part of a bigger voice for coaches and instructors, please sign up to be a NICA member at: http://www.ntuc.co/nica (Note: to indicate ‘NICA’ under the field for Company Name). Find out more about NICA at: http://www.nica.org.sg or http://www.facebook.com/nicasingapore
