Percussion issue: Dame Evelyn Glennie talks to Music Teacher about her music education and how teachers provided support with her deteriorating hearing; forming your own junk orchestra; livening up lessons with body percussion; the best drum kits for teaching; clapping and Flamenco; and using turntables to teach creative music and science.

Plus, MT examines the gender divide between instruments and asks why some are more popular among girls than boys (and vice versa); a new app developed by Stowe School’s head of keyboard aims to revolutionise pupils’ practice; Roxanna Panufnik’s community opera brings the realities of war to a new generation; musical confidence for primary teachers; and how Cheltenham Festivals’ Musicate programme is bringing performers into schools to create connections between local culture, musicians and schoolchildren.
