Beginner’s guide to music

Are you confusing your maracas with your castanets? Don’t despair, help is at hand with this essential NQT beginner’s guide
Remembering my music seminars at university (I had just eight in four years in which to prepare me for teaching the KS1 and KS2 curriculum!), I was under the misapprehension that with my own class, I would spend every music lesson playing ‘London’s Burning’ on the recorder and singing ‘Land of the Silver Birch’ with a chime bar accompaniment. Ring any bells? I hope not.
I was lucky. I am fairly musical. Gloria Estefan was right – the rhythm did get me and it equipped me with enough knowledge to teach a music lesson well. But not everyone feels like that – I still receive numerous bribes from colleagues to take their classes for music. For many it is clearly an area where subject confidence is flagging.
