This session will cover the basics of primary music and instil confidence in a subject that can create a lot of fear.
Teachers will leave the session confident in their understanding of pitch, rhythm and beat, the building blocks to music. Teachers will also be given strategies for confident singing and using instruments. Teachers will learn a basic understanding of notation and how to teach this to all year groups.
Please note! This session is designed for those who have very little experience or confidence when delivering curriculum music in KS1 and KS2.
