Effective music breakouts at GCSE
Practical guidance for including small-group performing workshops in classroom teaching.
Is it possible to follow a GCSE course without any practical music-making? Sadly, the answer is yes. I constantly meet music teachers who have had this experience during their own education. But is this the best way to learn about music? Definitely not. It is like learning about art without drawing or drama without acting. And learning how to manage such musical activity in the classroom can be a significant challenge.
