“As always with MMA INSET, the day was fun and useful and the conversation over coffee was just as helpful.”

David Hall, Director of Music, Twyford School

The MMA has an annual INSET programme that seeks to provide relevant and practical information that will aid its members in professional development. Aiming to cover a broad range of subjects throughout the year, the programme always includes useful material for all those working in a school music department including instrumental teachers, classroom teachers, directors of music and music administrators. We link with expert speakers and workshop leaders from our corporate members and beyond to deliver up to date tools for your personal portfolio, the welfare of your department and the colleagues you work with.

Annual Conference 2018

The MMA Annual Conference has an enviable reputation for hosting the widest and highest quality range of INSET, located in a host school. Join us in May 2018 at Eton College. Click here for our Conference page.

Each of us learned something from our own and other’s experiences, and I would challenge even the hardiest of veteran conductors not to take something away from Catherine’s clear and effective approach. I shall definitely be attending again.
