This book will help any primary teacher deliver music in the classroom with confidence, however limited their previous experience.
It covers a wide range of issues including:
Preparing your classroom and lessons
Delivering the subject itself
Raising the profile of music in your school and the wider community
Performing, listening, composing, assessment, using ICT, putting on concerts and planning the curriculum are just a few of the topics included.
While aimed at the practicing, non-specialist classroom teacher, there is also advice for music subject leaders, the head teacher and ultimately all of the staff in a school.
The author is a former secondary head of music in a performing arts college with considerable experience of working with his local primary schools to ease the transition from Key Stage 2 to the Key Stage 3 music curriculum.
