Pick up and play! Whether you want to spend 10 minutes or two hours on music, Kickstart Music 1 is a complete activity pack for 5-7 year-olds. Bursting with inspiring music ideas, it has practical instructions for engaging lessons covering the entire subject.

The book includes guidance and activities covering all musical elements such as rhythm, composition, listening, playing and singing. Kickstart Music 1 can be used in a variety of ways and suits holistic, flexible teaching. It is a fantastic 'dip-in' resource that practitioners can open at any page and try, but it is also a comprehensive scheme of work which can be covered from beginning to end over the course of time. Other books in the new A&C Black music series include Kickstart Music 2 (7-9 year-olds), Kickstart Music 3 (9-11 year-olds) and Kickstart Music Early Years for under-fives.
