Part of May’s issue is dedicated to how we teach composition, in a range of settings. David Stowell reflects on what makes a successful piece for exams, highlighting the importance of strong melodies and planned structures, while Karen Marshall provides a ‘way in’ to composition through the humble Theme & Variations. Sally Nicholson, meanwhile, shares her research into knowledge-rich creative activities, which include using poems and paintings at KS3, and Melanie Spanswick celebrates keeping things simple when writing for piano.
Beyond composition, we consider the role and effectiveness of Whole Class Ensemble Tuition, how ‘ecosocial’ music education could give young people a voice, and how digital music is distributed beyond the classroom. We also provide template ideas for developing skills when working with DAWs, and report on an Outstanding School Music Department, on a music charity kitting-out the nation’s schools, and on resources available for SEND, Early Years and teaching harmony.
