Course Overview

As a music teacher; you will use your creative talents to help students discover their confidence and build on it, express themselves through the art of playing a musical instrument and singing, and prepare for real-life situations where they may be in the spotlight.

You will inspire students and create opportunities for them to make and understand music, teaching it as a practical art form.  Teaching music will also prepare students to make informed decisions about further learning and progression.

When you teach Music at secondary level, you will ensure that pupils:

  • Apply knowledge and understanding when making, performing and responding to music
  • Understand social, cultural and historical context including the musical conventions of the period in which they were created
