Review quote

'This book is a must have for the newly qualified or experienced secondary music teacher alike. It is easy to read, thought provoking and full of useful advice. The opening sentence in Chapter one sets the tone of the book. 'We believe that the study of music should be a central part of every child's education'. It explains the changes made to the National Curriculum unpicking the meaning behind the statements and exploring the Key concepts and processes. The current version of the National Curriculum is not prescriptive in content but provides a useful framework upon which to base a personalised programme of teaching and learning in music for individual school settings. As music educators we should be constantly reflecting on our practice and developing new ideas to ensure a continually vibrant and living music curriculum. This book offers a good starting point, with questions at the end of each chapter to encourage the reader to reflect on personal practice. The case studies give practical examples of how others have approached particular issues. Exploring the framework, range and content of a curriculum through to musical development and the thorny question of assessment, this is a book for planning and reviewing your own curriculum, what one plans to deliver, why and how the learning will take place'
Sarah Kekus, Chair of the National Association of Music Educators 2011
