Never lose valuable lesson time when circumstances conspire against you!

Minimum preparation, maximum learning: this pack supports Music Departments faced with providing emergency absence cover, often by non-specialist teachers. Music Cover Lessons provides ten valuable learning experiences focused on the need for stylistic awareness, understanding of key terms, and appreciation of musical traditions:

  • Flexibility designed for the non-specialist – the mixed-ability activities can be delivered easily, regardless of the teacher’s musical ability or equipment available, and with a minimum of preparation.
  • Multi-purpose – the lessons are designed for KS3 and 4 in school, or as homework, revision or bridging activities.
  • Relevant and purposeful – the activities are focused on providing a valuable learning experience.

Complete with a CD-ROM offering further flexibility, the lessons cover a range of styles from Baroque and British folk to African music. A YouTube playlist has been prepared to help the teacher access suggested listening extracts with a minimum of fuss.

      Musicroom Reviews

      This book has been extremely useful for my music classes. The instructions are clear so they are useful for cover teachers, and the CD means that cover lessons can include listening activities, and therefore be a bit more 'musical' than otherwise. The only downside is that often several pages are needed for an activity so a lot of photocopying might have to be done.
