A classroom arrangement that will introduce your pupils to jazz, blues and swing music.
26th August 2016
This arrangement of ‘Beginner’s Blues’ is the culmination of an Artist’s Collaboration between Keir C. Crawley (Head of Performing Arts, composer and arranger) and Ben Cottrell (band leader, composer and arranger) as part of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance’s Teach Through Music initiative.
This project aimed to make music the dominant language of the Key Stage 3 classroom and ran during the academic year 2014/2015. It paired Fellows, experienced music educators with teachers looking to develop their music teaching through a range of musical interests. Continuing professional development was provided by Trinity Laban in the form of workshops; inspire events and short courses on a range of topics including composition, performance and assessment at high profile venues such as the Barbican and South Bank Centre in London.
Keir is a Music Excellence London Teacher Advocate.
