Our approach to Music

Children love music and music is critical to developing a range of skills, but it can be a challenging subject to teach if you don’t have a musical background. Our music specialists make teaching music simple with engaging lessons based on children’s favourite themes, from animals and nature to space and superheroes, with plenty of cross-curricular links throughout.  The schemes of work underpin pupil progression and teacher skills videos support non-specialists.

“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.” Plato
