I am a primary school teacher on a mission to learn how to teach music. I have no specialist skills. Just enthusiasm.

Using picture books
I recently discovered the joy of using picture books with key stage 1 to explore timbre, rhythm, pulse and pitch. I have dug out a selection of about 6 books that I love and have found ways to explore musical elements. I know good primary school teachers have probably being doing this for years but it has only just occurred to me! I plan to photograph the different books I use during the term with the instruments the class select.
