With a wealth of straightforward, practical ideas, a revised chapter on assesment and a new chapter on the role of the music co-ordinator, this new edition of Teachin Music in the Primary School will be indispensable reading for all primary teachers, primary music co-ordinators and those running music courses in teacher education at undergraduate, postgraduate or INSET levels.
