Building Music

In 2004, with funding from the Department for Education & Skills, the BASCA Trust developed Building Music, a pilot project to help music teachers in primary schools use composers and songwriters as a resource.

The project delivered a booklet for Key Stage 2 teachers in support of their National Curriculum requirement to teach Composition.  The booklet included general suggestions and tips for lessons and projects, and specific ideas concerning Composers and Songwriters coming in to the classroom as visiting experts and how to make best use of them, before, during and after the visits.  The project pilot tested the resource in schools in Enfield and Tower Hamlets.
