119: Pizzicato Lane with Rachel Hopson

We continue our Primary Music on Fire specials with a focus on nursery and early years. I chat to Rachel Hopson who is launching a new resource called Pizzicato Lane.

Rachel is head of music in a Sandwell secondary school in the West Midlands and has taught music for 20 years. Her real passion is the study of how young children’s personal and academic development can be enhanced by early exposure to music. This is why Pizzicato Lane has been created.

118: Get 2 Learn Music with Chris Livingstone

We continue our Primary Music on Fire specials with the opportunity to learn about one of our members Chris Livingstone. We discuss the courses Chris has developed for Get 2 Learn Music and explain how you can sign up for our upcoming webinar where you can get a look inside his rhythm courses.

Primary Music on Fire members will receive a discount on any purchases from the webinar.

Chris Livingstone has been teaching music for over 20 years. In 2008 he began teaching whole class music in UK schools as part of the first access music program (aka wider opps). As he travelled to many schools delivering music he noticed that the regular class teachers who assisted him in delivering music would realise that they could deliver the fundamentals of music themselves even without specialist instrumental knowledge providing they had great visual resources lesson plans and the right support. This led him to develop courses to help all teachers to deliver the fundamentals of music regardless of their teaching background or specialism.

Sign up here to receive a FREE Primary Music on Fire rhythm game download and get on the email waiting list for the webinar.

116: Creating a new Education on Fire learning community

Mark explains his idea about starting an Education on Fire Community by bringing everyone involved in the Education on Fire Podcast Network together to support the children in our lives.

A group of people to lead the creation of important learning content that we can gift our children.

  • Education on Fire
  • Learning on Fire
  • National Association for Primary Education

This concept was first shared on episode 50 of the Learning on Fire Podcast.
