A response to the National Curriculum consultation

Music, and therefore Music education, is about composing, performing and listening (which is a discrete activity, but pervades both composing and performing too).


Music can and should be more than just ‘play time’ though, and layering theoretical concepts to be explored through compositional improvisation is a good way to teach.

WordsFinding a way to jot down ideas soon becomes necessary, and interpreting the ideas of others, desirable.  Of course, actually recording students’ work is an invaluable tool too.
