These short case studies document a selection of action research projects undertaken as part of Teach Through Music; teachers report and reflect upon changes they have made in their classroom practice, and the impact this has had on pupils.


More case studies will be posted here throughout Spring 2016, each announced via the Teach Through Music and Music Excellence London twitter pages. 

An overview of the case studies undertaken throughout Teach Through Music can be found here.

“Groups were much more able to work in a focused manner, independently; [I observed] an increase in dialogue from quieter members of the group; I saw problem-solving skills developing/being used as students were able to assess their work more easily; [My approach] encouraged students to consider ‘higher level’ issues e.g. balance, dynamics, and timbre”
