Musical Futures: Just Play is the new skills-building approach from Musical Futures.  The Premium Resources provided alongside this training have been created around Musical Futures pedagogies and approaches, with many of the key principles of Musical Futures pulled in .

  • For any teacher of years 4-6 who wants to make music with their classes, this approach to music teaching has been designed and scaffolded for teachers who don’t consider themselves to be music specialists, which means that no previous musical experience is necessary.
  • For primary music specialists, Just Play can be adapted for use with a range of instruments or to feed and build on WCIT teaching.
  • For secondary music teachers this is a great way to build basic instrumental skills on a range of instruments commonly found in the secondary classroom and is ideal for use with years 7-9.

Please note that Musical Futures: Just Play is designed to enhance, rather than replace, any specialist music provision that primary schools may already engage with.
