  • manageable ideas for tracking children’s progress;
  • help with planning inclusive music activities and supporting children with special needs;

  • the opportunity to assess your school’s music resources and instruments, their storage and accessibility for children and staff;
  • knowledge of the latest music curriculum resources available;
  • a support network of like-minded teachers and music leaders in the area, on whom you can call upon for guidance and help (including Facebook page support)
