Wanting ideas on how to use technology in your primary curriculum? Phill Heeley from Inclusive Music joins us to provide ideas!

Engaging with and using music technology in primary school music curriculum can be a daunting task. Knowing what software to use, what resources to look at and getting to grips with them yourself is time consuming. We believe that music technology can play a vital role in the development of a broad and balanced curriculum and offers pupils with the opportunity to explore a vast range of transferable skills necessary to continue learning about music from primary school beyond.

In this session will discuss the benefits of using technology when studying music at primary level. We will explore ways to use music technology within the primary school curriculum including composition and recording techniques. Teachers will come away with ideas for resources and equipment that would benefit the study of music and technology at primary key stages.

This session is suitable for primary music leads, headteachers and SLT as well as teachers of music in primary schools.
