This BA (Hons) Music with Teaching degree explores music, instrumental teaching and how to teach a variety of students. You will prepare to teach through practical experience, theoretical study and by learning a new instrument during your course.
This course allows you to explore the technique and mechanics of your own instrument and how it works with various learners, from young children with changing bodies to adults with more established muscular routines. You will investigate graded examination systems across classical and popular music and explore how music is taught in the National Curriculum for mainstream and special needs children and explore the psychology of learning and teaching and prepare to support individual students. Every pupil is different so you will learn to prepare, assess, reflect, and revise interactions and how teaching material is presented. Your understanding will support positive and pupil-centred teaching, instead of using a reactive approach.
As well as theoretical knowledge you will gain practical teaching experience, prepare assembly presentations and workshops for KS1 and KS2 children, and visit schools to see the different contexts you could work in as a visiting private teacher.
In your final year you will experience one-to-one and group teaching, and teach individual lessons to peers and colleagues. Recordings of these lessons will be used to reflect on your planning, progress, and effectiveness in tailoring lessons to the learning needs of individuals.
On this course you will:
- Explore teaching to a range of students.
- Learn a new instrument as a beginner and sit a mock Grade 1 exam.
- Plan a year’s repertoire study.
- Gain practical experience in schools.
- Teach individual and group lessons.
