Format: Books | Reference
The Music Factory is a comprehensive, innovative and practical music course, covering Key stage 3 of the National Curriculum and GCSE. The core of The Music Factory is a flexible Teacher Resource Book, containing 120 practical activities for classroom music-making.

This book aims to provide teachers with a comprehensive source of ideas, approaches and starting points. Each of the five chapters focus on a conceptual area: Rhythm and Metre; Pitch and Melody; Harmony; Structure and Form; and Timbre and Texture.

Each chapter has four sections, progressing from elementary to more advanced material; and each section contains six main activities, each presenting a framework for music-making focused around a particular idea, and involving whole-class, group or individual work. The activities explore a variety of musical styles, and seek to reveal the similarities and individual characteristics of each. Some activities share a stylistic focus, such as aspects of North Indian classical music, or the 12-bar blues.

This is a fantastic resource for teachers and, whenever possible, suggested listening is drawn from a range of musical cultures.
