Bristol Plays Music launches new music resource for the city backed by Aardman

Today Bristol Plays Music launched a unique resource to support music education and development in local schools at a special event dedicated to teachers and industry professionals.

As the music education hub for the city, Bristol Plays Music currently provides music tuition and workshops in 91% of Bristol’s primary schools.  In partnership with industry experts they have developed a new Secondary School Music Curriculum which launches this week, as well as the third phase of their award winning Primary Music Curriculum and a pioneering primary school programme that provides sixty seconds of sounds from around the city each day to encourage creative listening.

The new Secondary Music Curriculum provides innovative schemes of work including a specialist film composition unit created with Aardman and a classical composition module by well-known Bristol based composer Richard Barnard. Later this year Bristol Plays Music aims to launch further schemes of work on minimalism, jazz and blues and a comprehensive range of GCSE music listening exercises.

Also launching today is Bristol Plays Music’s third phase of their award winning Primary School Music Curriculum which is focusing on pitch and chronology and is a range of lesson plans, video and audio resources available for all primary schools to download for free.
