Kitting out a Primary Music room!

Discussion in 'Music' started by mandievider, Aug 14, 2015.

  1. Hi,

    If you could create your dream primary music department (KS1 in particular), what would you include?

    What could you not survive without and what would be your ultimate indulgences?

    I look forward to hearing your suggestions!

    A good selection of basic untned percussion instruments-tambourines, drums, maraccas claves, guiros, finger cymbals, 2 sets of chime bars, boomwhackers and hand bells. Enough xylophones and glockenspiels for one between two.

    I would include a selection of instruments from other cultures.

    Posters of instruments, a music history timeline, reference books.

    Teacher resource books, good quality CDs to listen to, good quality sound system to play them on, recording euqipment,

    Good selection, sp, but would you not also include a piano or electric keyboard (for accompanying singing)?

    I'd get a set of individual whiteboards with staves on. V useful. They're blank on the side which is great for graphic scores, quiz answers etc. Only about £35 for a class set. I video or photograph anything we want to keep from them.

    Bagpipes. Bagpipes everywhere. They lend themselves to whole class ensemble teaching, easy for little fingers to find their way around, and produce the joyous sound of the highlands.
