In these uncertain times for music education, Music Teacher provides an essential meeting point and resource for industry practitioners.
With the Ebacc undermining the value of arts subject, music has come to be seen as a ‘luxury’ or ‘soft’ subject, which not only devalues its importance as an essential source of confidence and creativity for many, but undermines the invaluable work carried out by music educators across the board. In times like these, it’s crucial for music teachers to have a space where they can discuss and share ideas about their profession, keeping the passion alive for the vital work they do.
With the message ‘your voice in music education’ at its core, Music Teacher acts a mouthpiece for educators across the UK. Whether they are new to teaching or well-experienced, a classical or contemporary musician, a secondary school teacher or freelance, Music Teacher keeps education practice fresh and engaging – with content tailored to the concerns and passions driving educators forward today.
Above all, Music Teacher is a platform for raising awareness of the key issues affecting music teachers today, providing professional advice while ensuring that music is accessible for everyone.
With practical features, topical opinion, teaching resources and reliable reviews, each issue is driven by a specific theme – such as Piano, Early Years and Musicals, which guides the monthly content – providing helpful guidance and pedagogical advice that can be put into practice inside and outside of the classroom. Each issue also includes online teaching resources – from Key Stage 3 to 5 – which are written by working music educators to fit in with the national curriculum.
