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.

"Well researched and well written, You can teach Primary Music clearly communicates the author’s passion for improving the primary school musical experience and needs to find its way into all primary staffrooms now."

Rating Review
Customer Rating As a trainee teacher, I think that this book is a fantastic resource for any primary school teacher, even if you feel confident with teaching music.
Each chapter is split into questions that I imagine are frequently thought of by practising teachers, as well as those who are training.
The book is written in a user-friendly way that communicates a real passion for music, which comes through clearly in the way that the book is written and can only be passed on to the reader and hopefully therefore through to the children.
I think that this is a must-have book for all primary school teachers to increase confidence and generate plenty of brilliant ideas for music lessons for the children to enjoy.

Customer Rating This is a really interesting book; full of sensible practical advice for both specialists and non specialists. Recommended.

Customer Rating “positive, supportive and optimistic throughout…if I had had this book to refer to (when I started teaching) I may have done better… down to earth manner…incredibly useful… text is accompanied by helpful diagrams and photos of children making music…highly relevant to today’s curriculum…its breadth of content will make it a useful resource for any primary school library…(when I was teaching) I would have wanted it in my classroom permanently…invest in a copy and you will be able to teach primary music”
Music Teacher magazine

Customer Rating For those primary school teachers having to teach music, this is a very practical, easy to follow, easy to read, and well constructed book, full of good ideas. If you, as a teacher, are dubious about teaching music, I would recommend this book.

Customer Rating Although conceived as a resource for primary class teachers and music coordinators, many a secondary teacher could learn a thing or two from this book, and it would be a particularly good investment for those tasked with the job of KS2/3 transition or working with colleagues in feeder primaries, as well as for any non-specialist colleague teaching music in secondary. It would also be a valuable addition to the shelves of both primary and secondary music teaching course providers, as well as to the briefcase of NQTs. Well researched and well written, 'You can teach Primary Music' clearly communicates the author's passion for improving the primary school musical experience and needs to find its way into all primary staffrooms now.
