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."
