Live Courses

Bigger Better Brains Live Courses are designed to move you through the world of neuromusical research – from introduction to becoming a changemaker and leader.


Neuromusical research is the use of music listening and learning as a tool to understanding how the brain develops, learns and changes through life.

Our live courses allow you to gain knowledge and understand how music learning impacts brain development and benefits every child’s growth. Be inspired to make change in your school and community and have the ongoing support of Bigger Better Brains to help you.

The BBB Live Courses are a unique and bespoke experience. The course numbers are deliberately small so that every participant has the opportunity to ask questions, develop their skills and find their own style of education and advocacy using the neuromusical research.

Every course experience is the distinctive and participants come away with a deep and lasting connection to the educators they shared the course experience with.

Our live courses will give you

  Expert knowledge in the brain science of music learning

  Personal confidence to share the neuromusical research effectively and correctly

  Professional inspiration to apply the neuromusical research to support your teaching practice and advocacy campaigns

  A personalised plan to create change in your schools and organisations with greater confidence to advocate effectively
