Thinking of where to go next with your music in school?  Wanting fresh ideas? Thinking of purchasing a new music scheme?

Why would you choose ACTIVE MUSIC?

We provide well-sequenced tried and tested lesson plans with clear progression in musical skills within each year group and between the year groups.  For TOTAL CERTAINTY as to whether you are teaching as the lesson plans suggest you can view over 90% of ALL the games and musical activities within the lesson plans.  Should you lack confidence in actually delivering the lesson, the DVDs can help you.  By showing them on the interactive whiteboard, your children can see how the games go and what is expected of them. Some classes sing and play the games along with the DVDs.

ACTIVE MUSIC is very easy-to-follow and as a teacher, you can learn alongside the children.  It is TOTALLY SKILL-BASED, so the focus is on rhythm, pulse, singing in tune, using instruments and creating compositions etc, rather than linking music to topics such as Victorians or insects, for instance.  That is because we believe music is a valid and vital subject in itself, benefitting the children in thinking, sequencing and coordination skills among many, many others.

ACTIVE MUSIC contains so many ideas perfect for primary children and having more tried and tested ideas to develop children’s musicianship skills can only be a good thing, can’t it? Imagine having over 500 ideas to add to your repertoire, to keep forever and use throughout your career?

Don’t take our word for it – see what other teachers say?

‘The lessons are fantastic – I love them. I’ve been teaching straight from the plans and adapting as I go. They’ve given me lots of repertoire and have helped my confidence. The children love it – it’s the best music teaching I’ve ever done.’

Louise Tinker, South Bersted Primary School, Bognor Regis

‘Teachers who are not even specialists are saying to me ‘We can do this!‘ It’s simple, usable, effective and the children love it. It’s absolutely genuinely true. This is just what we need and we know where to go next because it’s in front of us – thank you so much…’

Rachel Kendal – Dept Head, Thomas-A-Becket First School, Worthing
