Testimonials of teachers who have used the Active Music lesson plans and DVDs
‘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
‘I am an upper Key Stage 2 non-specialist teacher. The lesson plans are so detailed, step-by-step and easy to follow. The DVD so clearly demonstrates anything
you’re not sure of. I have tried 3 different schemes that all say they are suitable for specialists and non-specialists alike but I find them too hard to access. This is a BRILLIANT SYSTEM. I am very appreciative.’
Elaine Cacket – Seaside Primary School,Lancing, West Sussex
‘It’s an answer to our prayers – it meets the requirements and it’s fun. The plans are detailed and I find them easy to follow – the children have always been enthusiastic with music since we started your scheme.’
G Hogan – Yr 2 teacher – St Richard’s CAtholic Primary School, Chichester
‘Clear, concise, easy to read and follow. Fun music that really involves the children’

Class teacher -St Richard’s Catholic Primary School, Chichester
‘The plans 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
‘All our staff have given extremely positive feedback about the scheme, it has completely refreshed and enhanced the teaching of music across our school! As a new music coordinator it has been fantastic to have such a high quality resource up and running in my first year. I’m excited to see it develop even further next year’. Hannah Nutting, Soltaire Primary School…
‘I am thrilled to have discovered the Active Music resources.The planning is very well set out and easy to follow. The films are a valuable teaching aid but also enjoyable for my pupils to see and copy. Having been in the job for a while, I was beginning to flag. These new resources are full of ideas which you can either pluck out to liven up existing lesson ideas or follow in thier entirity.The children absolutely love the songs and games. They sing and play them in the playground too which is the ultimate proof of how good they are. I feel as though my teaching has been rejuvenated through using the activities to make my
lessons pacier. Thank you very much!’ Infant Teacher at Amsterdam International School
I have been using Active music since the start of this term. I have been teaching music for over 20 years and this has given me new ideas and approaches that have really enhanced my teaching.
Wow! What a great comment. I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know. I’m so glad Active Music is inspiring you. It’s always good to hear from someone who finds it useful as that is why I spent 10 years putting it together!
