Whole class iPad 10-week programme for primaries and secondaries


Final places on popular whole class iPad 10-week programme for primaries and secondaries


The Music Works’s popular whole class iPad music programme has proved a hit with pupils and teachers alike and there are only a few places left for early 2017, so if you’re considering it, do book soon (subsidised cost: £392)! Extra bonuses this year include Pupil Logs and post-programme video tutorials for teachers. Here’s what one headteacher said:

 “It achieved all we wanted it to: understanding of musical concepts as well as composition - often the hardest thing to deliver. It was successful too in engaging ALL pupils through music. We have a few in year 5 that have behavioural issues, ADHD, family members with mental health problems- so they find concentration and engagement really hard, but they were completely. I think it has changed their perception of themselves, how they feel about music and what they can achieve.” Diane Bainbridge, Headteacher, Whiteshill Primary, nr Stroud
