We continue our Primary Music on Fire specials with a focus on nursery and early years. I chat to Rachel Hopson who is launching a new resource called Pizzicato Lane.
Rachel is head of music in a Sandwell secondary school in the West Midlands and has taught music for 20 years. Her real passion is the study of how young children's personal and academic development can be enhanced by early exposure to music. This is why Pizzicato Lane has been created.
The National Association for Primary Education speaks for young children and all who live and work with them. This includes parents, teachers, governors and all those interested in primary education. NAPE is a non-political charity and works tirelessly to support teachers in the classroom as expressed in their ‘Value of Membership’ Document. NAPE leads the Primary Umbrella Group of thirty primary subject associations and unions and gives teachers and schools a voice at governmental level at consultative meetings with ministers for schools.
