William Thompson is the Director of Education with Chamberlain Music and an amazing contact for the MTIIS community. 

He is an experienced music educator who is one of those people that all international school music teachers should know. His understanding of curriculum, pedagogy and music education philosophy informs every element of his work in his current role as a consultant. William works with international school music teachers from around the world to help them design and build world-class and truly effective music education spaces, including classrooms, practise rooms, recording studios, recital halls, concert halls, and theatres. He also specialises in setting up networked Apple-based music tech solutions in schools. William's approach is all about building connections within the international school music ed community. I met William over 10 years ago and in that time I've been able draw on his expertise and advice multiple times - it saved me (my school) time, money and headaches!

In this episode, William shares:

  • Some brilliant advice for international school music teachers who are looking for help with designing music ed spaces. 
  • His 3 top tips for those interested in setting up a recording space.
