This book looks at two years in the life of the UK's first Specialist Music College -- the Northampton School for Girls -- and sets the development of this school against what we know about other schools often described as 'musical'. Foreword by Howard Goodall.

This book looks at two years in the life of the UK's first Specialist Music College -- the Northampton School for Girls -- and sets the development of this school against what we know about other schools often described as 'musical'. The author also sets out a wider context of local and national developments in education, and challenges myths about musical children and the idea that some children never succeed in music. This book does not provide easy answers but, in an entertaining and thought-provoking way, challenges the reader to think hard about the issues surrounding music provision in schools and to reflect on and help develop their practice. Foreword by Howard Goodall.
