Making Music in the Primary School is an essential guide for all student and practising primary school teachers, instrumental teachers and community musicians involved in music with children. It explores teaching and learning music with the whole class and provides a framework for successful musical experiences with large groups of children.Illustrated throughout with carefully designed activities to try out in the classroom, the guidance in this book will help you support and develop children's musical experience, whatever your musical or teaching background.Underpinned by theory and proven good practice, the book is structured around the four key principles that underpin effective music teaching and experience:Integration ' how can we join up children's musical experience?Creativity ' how can we support children's musical exploration?Access and Inclusion ' how can we provide a relevant experience for every child?Collaboration ' how might we work together to achieve these aims?
