A call for pilot schools

Musical Futures and Trinity College London are looking for 5 schools in the UK to take part in a small in-school pilot in the Spring term of 2017.

We want to see how teachers might embed the Rock and Pop Session Skills resources into their classrooms. In return for access to sample resources which will include backing tracks and lead sheets, we ask that participating schools be prepared to:

  • Talk on social media and locally about Trinity Rock and Pop and how the pilot is progressing
  • Create and share one scheme of work to show how they have used these with classes
  • Open their doors for a visit by a member of the Musical Futures or Trinity Rock and Pop teams

If you are interested in taking part please email info@musicalfutures.org with details of your school and a short summary of the year group/class you would like to use for the pilot work. The closing date for expressions of interest will be Friday 13th January 2017 with in school work taking place from February 1st-April 28th and schemes of work to be shared by June 1st 2017.

Please note that we will be selecting schools based on gathering as wide a variety of outcomes as possible.

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.

Yesterday’ss RSL course was absolutely outstanding. The school was awe inspiring and just walking round the corridors gave me some excellent ideas to implement at my own school. With regards to the RSL aspect of the course, I now have a strong understanding on how to run it and know how my assignment briefs should look etc. etc.
