Secondary School Support
Trafford Music Service can provide one to one, small and large group instrumental teaching in secondary schools, along with the direction of ensembles, bands, orchestras and choirs. The music service can arrange to provide one off workshops – for example samba and/or African drumming for KS3 students or composition workshops for GCSE pupils.
The music service co-ordinates termly meetings for secondary music teachers across the borough and the agenda for these meeting are determined by the music teachers themselves and recent topics have included GCSE and A level syllabus changes, assessment and music technology. This is a good opportunity for colleagues to meet and discuss current issues and share good practice.
Heads of music departments can book a meeting (free of charge) with the advisor for secondary music who has 25 years of secondary classroom teaching to discuss any relevant teaching issues from curriculum planning to OFSTED preparation.
