Listen Out by Helen MacGregor, Sue Nicholls

Listen Out! is a resource for class music listening and includes 10 pieces of music, one for every week of a school term. The book provides associated on-screen displays and simple teachers' notes. This enables teachers to choose appropriate music for listening and approach it with confidence. Listen Out! enables teachers to fulfil the national curriculum requirement for children to 'listen with discrimination to the best in the musical canon' and 'listen to, review and evaluate music across a range of historical periods, genres, styles and traditions, including the works of the great composers and musicians.' The resource contains 10 pieces of music to listen to, discuss and learn about. There is one for every week of a school term, and the book also includes on-screen displays and simple teachers' notes. This resource would help teachers by picking appropriate pieces to start with, and appropriate musical aspects to focus on.

About the Author

Sue Nicholls Sue Nicholls worked as a music subject leader in many primary settings during her career as a teacher, and achieved the status of Advanced Skills Teacher in 2002, a role which allowed her to develop her particular passion within music education: the support of generalist teachers. She has published several music resource books for non-specialists for A&C Black and OUP, written programmes for a BBC Early Years programme, and lectures on music modules for teacher trainees at two universities. Helen MacGregor Helen MacGregor wrote many songs and units for the new editions of Music Express, as well as compiling all the lesson plans, and has many years' experience of teaching in primary schools. She is particularly passionate about working with schools to enhance music education for their pupils from Foundation Stage onwards, and has been Music Adviser for Southwark and Kent. Helen has combined teaching in schools with working for the London Philharmonic, teacher training to MA level, and writing or co-writing many classroom resources for A&C Black Music, including the Listening to Music series, Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes musicals, and the Singing Subjects series, such as Singing Phonics, Singing Maths and Singing French.
