    I am a non-specialist, but very keen, Music teacher for mixed age classes - YRS 2/3 and 4/5/6. I understood that the Music framework was to change in the Summer of 2019 but am struggling to find such a document anywhere. We are updating our whole school Music curriculum and obviously need to produce schemes of work which satisfy the statutory requirements. if anyone could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

    Key stage 1 Pupils should be taught to:  use their voices expressively and creatively by singing songs and speaking chants and rhymes  play tuned and untuned instruments musically  listen with concentration and understanding to a range of high-quality live and recorded music  experiment with, create, select and combine sounds using the inter-related dimensions of music. Key stage 2 Pupils should be taught to sing and play musically with increasing confidence and control. They should develop an understanding of musical composition, organising and manipulating ideas within musical structures and reproducing sounds from aural memory. Pupils should be taught to:  play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression  improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the inter-related dimensions of music  listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory  use and understand staff and other musical notations  appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians  develop an understanding of the history of music.

    That's it. Six years of music there!
    The framework that has changed is not the curriculum but the OFSTED inspection framework which focuses much more on the curriculum rather than on the outcomes:p

    The new model music curriculum has not been published yet. As stiltskin says, the ISM have produced their own free document.

    Keep to the 2013 music document for now until the other one is published.
