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

Does good music teaching make kids better at maths?
This year one of my schools is focusing on raising attainment in maths. It has got me thinking about how music lessons can contribute to children's mathematical development. I can see immediately how a number of the activities we do in lessons are very mathematical but the challenge is how to make it transferable to other situations other than music games. I am going to go in search of some maths experts and see if I can get some ideas. I plan to create a corridor display for the children showing how many mathematical concepts we explore during our music making.
Plan to get in touch with Nrich -
and get some advice from them
