Community Music Wales Tutor Training benefitted me in ways I would have never imagined 18 months ago. I have always played music for myself and my enjoyment but I've never really used my skills and knowledge to enable others to be creative with music. I never thought it would be so rewarding for me to be able to bring so much joy to people through different musical games, exercises and songs and by empowering them to make a choice about how they would like to be creative within the workshop.
During the course I was working a part time job to help me fund my music career. Since completing the course I have become a full time musician again and the course has helped me find new work and encourage me to use my musical skills in a variety of different ways.
Personally what I got out of the training course was being able to work on skills I already had, plus I gained a lot more. I gained insight into working with different groups of people, and how I would manage working with different groups of people. I learned loads of ideas for workshops and how to manage my time and preparation for actually running a workshop which was invaluable.
