A. Absolutely, yes! It even exceeds them.
The only part of the National Curriculum for music that we can’t claim is taught as part of Hullabaloo! is the bit about listening to a range of high-quality live music. You have to provide your own opportunities for this as we don’t employ a team of in-house travelling minstrels!
A. Yes, we have produced a white paper explaining how Hullabaloo! links to the MMC. You can read it here.
A. It certainly does! We have carefully created a mixed-age cycle that ensures not only coverage but progression across both years’ teaching.
A. How long have you got? All lessons can be adapted to work with your timetable. As an average indicator, each lesson is designed to last between 45 minutes and an hour. However, should you only have half an hour a week for music lessons, you could skip the warm-up and focus specifically on core learning.
Every class is different, and each teacher should use their professional judgment when using Hullabaloo!
A. Using our Music Guru film clips, teachers can learn alongside the children. However, we believe the single most effective way to improve teaching and learning in music is to provide high quality music professional development for teachers. That’s why we will be offering accessible, enjoyable music CPD to primary settings in 2024.
A. No. Not at all. You don’t have to sing like a nightingale either. You’ll be learning to play the recorder along with the children so that’s another string to add to your bow (boom, boom!)
A. Subscriptions renew annually and you can view costs here. This is a school subscription and sharing logins with teachers from other schools is a very bad thing… very, very bad! We will find out, hunt you down and …. well, we’ll leave the rest to your imagination. Just don’t do it.
