Music Teacher Guide about Music and Dyslexia


We’re looking for fanfares lasting no longer than 90 seconds. Entrants have four trumpets and four trombones to write for, but don’t have to use them all. There’s one competition for 16-and-unders, and one for 18-and-unders. The deadline is 31 January, so it might be something to send your students home with over the Christmas break. Full details, and details of how your students could win a stand at the Expo to showcase a product or resource of their own creation, can be found at www.musiceducationexpo.co.uk/competitions.

While I’m plugging all things Expo, I’d like to congratulate all those who were shortlisted for the Music Teacher Awards For Excellence. The full lists can be found on the Expo website, and don’t forget that you can vote for the winner of the Best Classical Music Initiative award, details of which will be up on the Classic FM website soon. The coming few months will be a time when we can celebrate the very real achievements of those shortlisted for the award – the Opera North Children’s Chorus, the BBC’s Ten Pieces project, the RSNO’s Takeover 2014, the Scratch Youth Messiah and In Harmony Telford and Stoke-on-Trent. The recent ‘Sistema Storm’, which followed the publication of British academic Geoffrey Baker’s book about the Venezuelan model, is potentially something of a distraction to the UK’s In Harmony organisations. I haven’t dwelt on it in the pages of MT, although we cover the dispute in our online news pages, but would welcome any views from teachers on whether Baker’s arguments have any resonance on these shores.
