Learning to Teach Music in the Secondary School is intended to support student-teachers, newly qualified teachers and more experienced music teachers in their professional development. Topics covered include:
-the place of music in the curriculum
-the nature of musical learning
-planning, managing and assessing musical learning
-school examinations and music
-music outside of the curriculum.
One of the main premises of the book is that music needs to be taught 'musically', with specific reference to both the nature of music itself and its metaphorical significance. It is important that music itself guides what goes on in the music classroom if we are to motivate our pupils and help them to fulfil their potential as musicians. This book will help student-teachers to develop their subject knowledge, teaching skills, understanding of the wider issues and their ability to reflect on classroom practice.
