Does Music at Key Stage 3 prepare students for GCSE and other pathways at KS4?

Keith Evans looks at the relationship between music at KS3 and KS4.

31st July 2016

How many of your students study music at KS4?

Keith Evans outlines that over 90% of students consistently choose not to study music beyond Key Stage 3. What are the implications of this for the content of our schemes of work? Should KS3 be seen as preparation for Key Stage 4?

What can we learn from art teachers?

Keith then compares art to music. Is there an ‘elite code’ in music that doesn’t exist in art education? If so, then what can we learn from it.
