    Are there any ideas out there for teaching secondary music in non music classrooms? No instruments or singing allowed. Year 10 in non music classroom with one teacher piano. Any help would be greatly appreciated particularly for year 9 . Thanks.

    Notation games?
    Pupils invent music quizzes and games?
    Graphic scores?
    Any computers for notation software/ sampling etc?
    Can you go outside to record 'sounds of nature / environmental sounds' and sample them back in the classroom to create compositions?

    Good luck, I hope it is going well.

    Schools are varying on this, and I'm lucky to still be in music classrooms and using some instruments. I can imagine it must be very challenging for you.
    I recommend the Facebook group KS3 music hints and tips, which is full of discussions relating to this at the moment. Good luck to you!

    I know it's gloomy.... but let's go with what we can while hopefully not boring the kids and ourselves stupid.

    My vague triumph this week was 'pencil case percussion' :D
