Classroom 200 is a free online resource for music teachers working with learners up to the age of 14.

In this course, we will unpack the resource, demonstrating how it can be used creatively and simply in the classroom and also in instrumental or vocal lessons. Performing & singing, listening and composing are taken in turn, and we will discover how skills are developed from through primary and secondary school using Classroom 200, by directly relating it to your curriculum and the aims of your teaching.

By the end of this course, you will be able to confidently use Classroom 200 in your music making, and you will leave the course with many practical examples of how it supports children to progress with their music making. Register for the resource in advance at www.classroom200.org.

By the end of this course, you will have:
  • Modified your learning resources to incorporate Classroom 200.
  • Investigated and reflected on the importance of the core skills; listening, performing, improvising and composing, and singing. 
  • Evaluated your schools' music provision and be able to incorporate Classroom 200. 
  • Explored the importance of how to take care of your voice in school.
  • Collaborated as part of a global network of music teachers.
