Sound Beginnings offers advice to all primary-level teachers who may not be specialists in the field of music. This book provides practical strategies for teaching children to perform, compose and appraise music of all kinds - offering ideas for five-minute activities as well as more extended classroom projects. In this book, Richard Frostick gives the benefit of twenty years experience as a music teacher, advisor and inspector. 'Here is a book for primary music teaching that speaks directly to the musician in everyone. The suggested activities are musical, educational and feasible. Teachers will find in them a stimulating, lively basis from which to generate further activities' - Professor Keith Swanwick (Dean of Research and Professor of Music Education, Institute of Education, University of London).
