The SEND Code of Practice (2015) has reinforced the requirement that all teachers must meet the needs of all learners. This topical book provides practical, tried and tested strategies and resources that will support teachers in making music lessons accessible and exciting for all pupils, including those with special needs. The authors draw on a wealth of experience to share their understanding of special educational needs and disabilities and show how the music teacher can reduce or remove any barriers to learning.

Offering strategies that are specific to the context of music teaching, this book will enable teachers to:

  • ensure all pupils are able to enjoy and appreciate music;
  • find the appropriate musical instruments to suit the individual learner;
  • develop approaches for teaching composition in mixed ability classrooms;
  • provide opportunities for different types of performance;
  • adapt content, approaches and resources for pupils with a wide range of learning needs.

An invaluable tool for continuing professional development, this text will be essential for teachers (and their teaching assistants) seeking guidance specific to teaching music to all pupils, regardless of their individual needs. This book will also be of interest to SENCOs, senior management teams and ITT providers.  

In addition to free online resources, a range of appendices provides music teachers with lesson case studies, behaviour plans and guidance on behaviour management and effective teaching. This is an essential tool for music teachers and teaching assistants, and will help to deliver successful inclusive lessons for all pupils.
