Join Katie Teage and Kent Music to explore ways of using composition and improvisation in your music curriculums

In this session you will be guided through what composition and improvisation looks like across the primary setting. We will discuss planning for composition and how to use the smallest elements of music to create wonderful pieces of music. Composition and Improvisation has great value for the children; creating ownership of their musical development for part of the lesson and enabling a fantastic opportunity for children to feel heard.

This session will look at compositional activities for students of all primary ages across KS1 and KS2. This session is suitable for teachers with a lack of experience teaching music as well as more experienced teachers.
