Description

How do some schools get music so right while others get it so wrong? Janet Mills, a former HMI and teacher, draws on work in more than 800 schools and published research as she seeks to help schools improve their practice – no matter how good it is already. Successful teaching, she argues, is creative, uplifting, enabling, and, above all, rooted in music. The aim of this book is to ‘put the music back into Music!’

Though-provoking, challenging and empowering, this book is an essential read for everyone interested in music in schools, including class teachers, instrumental teachers and researchers.

Using informative and entertaining examples and anecdotes, Janet Mills criticises notions such as ‘musical children’ and ‘musical schools’, and comments on the roles of instrumental teachers and so-called ‘non-specialists.’ She explores how music in school can, and must, interact with music out of school, and considers how to measure progress in music – and how not to.

Music in the School is not a step-by-step guide to better teaching, but rather a springboard for consideration, reflection, and action. Anyone who cares about music at school will find this book a powerful tool!
