Summary "This book arises from the Schools Council Project "Music in the Secondary School Curriculum" and presents the issues examined by the Project and the ideas disseminated by it. The book looks at a wide spectrum of current trends in classroom music-teaching, covering key assessment, timetabling, staffing and accommodation. This book is not a conventional 'report'; it offers practical guidance to teachers and puts a strong emphasis on active music-making. It is firmly based on the conviction that music should be part of the curriculum for all pupils. "Music in the Secondary School Curriculum" is a valuable discussion document which will make stimulating reading for all those concerned with music in education."--Book jacket
