I have been teaching for over ten years and as a director of music in a large school, this resource is refreshing and inspiring - thank you for allowing musicians to utilise such fantastic materials.

I’ve had the pleasure of using the site since October but I just wanted to reiterate how valuable this site is to a non-music teacher teaching music at KS3. Thanks so much!

As a music educator who has taught around the world I was so impressed with this site that I joined immediately. I found the educational aids very helpful and very well written. I would suggest that all music teachers who teach Key stage 3 and 4 consider becoming a member and having lifetime access to it. Absolutely fantastic and awesome site!

I have been impressed with the site. I first came across it when you placed a thread on the TES website and I liked the KS4 Edexcel set work, example as this idea of 12 set works for the GCSE is proving to be quite challenging for the children.
 
The resources I have scanned through look good and there are lots of little parts which will fit in nicely with some schemes I offer at KS3. At a quick glimpse I liked some of the film work and its nice you have included some video files.
 
I was also impressed with the fact you are very pro-active showing new topics to come soon such as the vocal unit, I think this resource you are offering will really take off and can be an asset to many music teachers.

My year 4’s are singing the Harmonic Minor and recognising the difference from the natural.  We are singing Camel Driver and my after school GAT’s are playing it on recorder.  It is challenging but they are rising to it!  They loved the pyramid composing too

Musical Contexts landed me my first permanent teaching post in the UK. Ironically the form and structure of the form and structure

observed lesson was what made me so successful at my interview.

I highly recommend all lessons provided by Musical Contexts!

I used some of the GCSE material yesterday with a low ability student who has had difficulty accessing the curriculum.  The lesson proved very successful with the student who enjoyed the wide selection of musical excerpts.
