Signposts to Music by Judith Lougheed

A unique new resource for Key Stages 1 and 2, these seven books of games and activities explore the seven musical elements required by the National Curriculum. It presents clear and simple instructions - ideal for the non-specialist music teacher. It includes fun, stimulating and progressive activities for individuals, groups, and the whole class. Each book contains an introduction to the element, and 19 pages of music activities and games using bodies, voices, and instruments. Each activity has a list of resources, easy step-by-step instructions, and photocopiable material where appropriate.


Each activity is clearly presented with simple instructions, resources needed, a learning focus, and numerous suggestions for link material and development. Key terms are explained in an introduction and there is plenty of advice for those new to organising music-making. The practical and varied ideas ensure that many aspects of each element are covered...these simple and thoughtful ideas will support teachers in helping children to listen attentively and enjoy making music. This alone should justify its inclusion in a school's music resources. Music Education Vol.15 No.2 1998
