This “Music’sCool” syllabus allows for flexibility in terms of teaching material allowing teachers to select musical material suitable for each school. The programme places singing at its heart and gives every child the opportunity to learn several instruments including the recorder, ukulele, tamboo bamboo, African drums and samba. The programme ensures children are ready to begin instrumental & vocal lessons are are signposted/selected accordingly.
