What others say ...

Kapow Primary is for musically-confident and unconfident teachers

I was only recently introduced to Kapow and while I was aware of it I hadn’t really spent the time to take an in-depth look at what it offers to both experienced music teachers and to teachers lacking in confidence in music delivery. I’m really impressed. The lesson plans are clear and easy to follow. At the start of each lesson the short teacher’s video explains and reinforces basic information, how to explain the terminology and often how to teach it. The safe links are supplied, the slides are all set up to make life easy for the teacher. As an experienced music teacher, (advisor, consultant and BA & PGCE music education lecturer) I cannot recommend Kapow’s music programme highly enough.Our teachers already using Kapow music are enthusiastic and enjoying their music lessons, the children are motivated, engaged and learning about music in an active and focussed way. Well done Kapow!!
