The children I am working with are responding to positively. They are very keen to learn new music and don’t not feel threatened to play. They enjoy the ‘have a go’ and ‘just play’ strategy.
During the chat, we will be asking five key questions and we want to know what you think:
Q1: Does grime/rap belong in our schools?
Q2: What are your experiences of grime/rap in or out of school?
Q3: How can artists support school music?
Q4: How can schools make better use of grime/rap?
Q5: What do teachers need to be able to use grime/rap in music lessons?
Tell us all about your thoughts, feelings and experiences of grime and rap in the classroom. There’s also plenty of scope for you to share your thoughts about the role of style/genre in the classroom – does it matter what style of music we use?
