Assessment in Music Education
This book discusses assessment and its role in teaching and learning music in the classroom. For improving learning and raising standards, it puts the case for formative assessment, day-by-day, rather than summative assessment at the end of key stages. The advice is relevant to classroom and instrumental teachers, and the academic community.

Creating a Musical School
This book looks at two years in the life of the UK's first Specialist Music College - the Northampton School for Girls - and sets the development of this school against what we know about other schools often described as 'musical'. Foreword by Howard Goodall.

Instrumental Teaching

Making Music
Making Music is an invaluable practical resource for all instrumental and singing teachers. It will ensure that you make the most of every minute of lesson time and gives you the necessary tools to develop a student's musicianship to the full. Making Music presents 200 accessible and imaginative activities to improve students' musical understanding and aural awareness. Subjects include warming up, pulse and rhythm, basic musical elements such as harmonic progression, scales, melody, improvising, and composing. Some less tangible aspects of music-making, such as musical character and expression, are also explored. Suitable for both group and individual lessons, and for students at all stages, Making Music provides a refreshingly practical approach to developing the whole musician.

Music for Children and Young People with Complex Needs
There are around 40,000 children and young people in the UK alone with severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties, yet despite the widely held belief that music is beneficial, provision is at best patchy. This book aims to foster progress in this young discipline by identifying key issues and providing practical advice for practitioners.

Music in the Primary School
This new edition of Music in the Primary School, a standard handbook for many years, was completed by the author in 2007. It contains new research, with the same practical application (for musicians and non-specialists alike), and takes into account requirements of the National Curriculum.

Music in the School
How do some schools get music so right while others get it so wrong? Janet Mills, a former HMI and teacher, draws on work in more than 800 schools and published research as she seeks to help schools improve their practice - no matter how good it is already. Successful teaching, she argues, is creative, uplifting, enabling, and, above all, rooted in music.
