New Music Guidance 2021

The government has created some guidance to help support teaching music.

I love listening to music but I am not what you’d call musical. I have often thought about learning to play an instrument alongside the children but they’ve never seemed keen. I would love to enhance their natural music curiosity but my subject knowledge is quite limited.

This new government guide is helpful if you want to teach your child music but don’t know where to start, particularly as they give you examples of different styles of music and songs to listen to together to ensure a basic breadth of genres. It’s not a statutory tool but could be useful as a guide.
