High quality music education can start children on a journey that lasts a lifetime. This book gives beginning primary school teachers clear guidance on how to successfully teach music without recourse to specialised training.
It places music within the wider context of the primary curriculum with clear links to the new National Curriculum in England. It also offers advice on how to provide evidence for and assess musical development and how to plan for music education across the EYFS and key stages 1 & 2. Useful information on using the musical resources in your local community to enhance the opportunities offered to your school is also provided.
This is essential reading for all students studying primary music on initial teacher education courses, including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS), postgraduate (PGCE, School Direct, SCITT), and also NQTs.
Alison Daubney is a music educator, researcher and curriculum adviser at the University of Sussex.

In The Press
Teaching Primary Music offers a principled, well-conceived and cohesive reflection on contemporary primary music education. The structure of the book is particularly helpful as it focused on specific elements of musical activity. Each chapter is informed and critically engages with important aspects of practice. In addition, each chapter provides insight into practice as well as opportunities for reflection. The style of the text is entirely suited to the needs of my undergraduate and post-graduate primary teaching students. I will be delighted to include in in our future reading lists.
