‘The Active Music Games have given me an amazing amount of quality repertoire for my classes and I have found the DVDs to be an invaluable asset as they immediately bring the games to life. I have played these games successfully with the whole school in assemblies along with the children on the DVDs. It is a fabulous resource and I would highly recommend it to all teachers.’
Bury Primary School
‘I have been delighted by the impact that the Active Music scheme is having in our primary schools in Rotherham. I was looking for something that would give non-specialist teachers the confidence to teach on a regular basis and these DVDs fit the bill perfectly! The lesson plans are clear and simple whilst still covering all aspects of National Curriculum Music and the videos enable teachers and children to learn the songs and games. Children learn vital skills and all learning really is ‘Active’. The response from the teachers who have used Active Music has been so positive that I would be happy for this scheme to be rolled out to all of our schools’.

Here I am, sitting in my classroom …
…with my children around me, with 30 voices all singing the same song and watching lots of little learning lightbulbs going off in my children’s heads. This is the joy in teaching music.
It wasn’t always like this. I used to dread planning for music lessons as much as I did washing up, although, like washing up, it needed to be done! I created a unique approach, a system, to build lesson plans and resources to help me plan my music lessons and before I knew it, I had friends asking me for it too.
One day, sat with my husband in our favourite cafe in The Netherlands, I had an epiphany … if this is making my life easier, why not share it with ALL music teachers? This is where Active Music began its journey.
Created from my understanding of music teaching, curriculum and the most common challenges, Active Music is now a resource used around the world to make music teacher’s lives easier.
Good, because there’s something I need to tell you.

There are also objective overviews sheets so that you get to see the skills that are being covered in a glance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q Is Active Music for specialists or non-specialists?
A Active Music is for both. It is particularly helpful for non-specialists as it is so easy-to-follow but it is also ideal for specialists who are looking for new repertoire or a new approach.
Q Does Active Music cover everything in the Music National Curriculum (UK)?
A Active Music covers all the skill-based practical music-making elements of the Music National Curriculum for 4 – 11-year olds.
Q What does Active Music not cover?
Active Music does not cover music history, specific listening from various composers or ICT but as mentioned earlier, it covers all the skill-based practical music-making elements of the Music National Curriculum.
Q Does Active Music work outside of the UK?
A Active Music works all over the world as it is based on musical development and not tied specifically to a curriculum. However, it fits into most curriculums because music is the same all over the world.
Q How is Active Music laid out?
A Active Music is divided into 4 sections. The aim is for each section to be taught over one half-term period. This covers 4 of the 6 half-terms within the year, purposefully leaving time for Christmas shows, musicals and other seasonal events. Each year group has 24 lesson plans to be covered throughout the year.
Q What does Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 mean?
A Key Stage 1 covers 4-7 year olds and Key Stage 2 covers 7 – 11 year olds.
Q How old are the children in years R,1,2,3,4,5,6,7?
A Reception children are 4-5 years, Year 1 – 5-6 years, Year 2 – 6-7 years, Year 3 – 7-8 years, Year 4 – 8-9 years, Year 5 – 9-10 years, Year 6 – 10-11 years.
Q Does Active Music work for Nursery/Kindergarten?
A Yes. Even though it has not been specifically written for 3 year-olds, all the games and activities within the Reception lessons (4-5 year-olds) work equally well with 3-4 year-olds.
Q How long is each lesson?
A Each lesson usually lasts for about 45 minutes, but it can vary depending on how many children want turns at each game and whether you focus for longer on a certain aspect of the lesson. Sometimes you may choose to take longer and may cover 6 lessons in 10 sessions for instance. The material and learning is progressive so you can go at your own pace,
Q Does Active Music only work if you teach it from the beginning?
A Active Music has been written so that it can be taught progressively from Reception up to Year 6 (4 – 11 year-olds). However, you can easily start at any year as it has also been written to be able to be dipped into and you do not need to have done the previous years in order to be able to teach it successfully. You can start at any point.
Q Does Active Music work well for supply teachers?
A Active Music has proven to work very successfully for supply teachers as lessons can be dipped into easily and with all the games and activities on video, the children can learn alongside the teacher.
Q What is the order in which I teach Active Music?
A Active Music has been written to be taught in the following order: Rhythm and Pulse, Pitch, Singing Games and Instrumental activities. It has been written progressively so that what the children have learnt in the first set of lessons is built upon in the next. Active Music can be dipped into but the results will be more secure if this path is followed.
Q Can I teach Active Music if I can’t sing in tune?
A The videos are very helpful for teachers who struggle to sing in tune as the children are singing the songs and can act as teachers or role-models for the children in the class.
Q Do you provide Objective Overviews so I can see clearly what Active Music covers and where can I find these?
A. Yes. Every half-term of lessons has its own set of lesson objectives all in one page which you can find below the lesson plans in the Members area.
Q Can I just pay for the videos and not the lesson plans?
A. Yes. Please visit our sister website www.singinggames.co.uk.
Q Can I download the videos and documents?
A. You can download and print all the documents, but you can’t download the videos from the website.
Q Do the videos work on the whiteboard?
A Yes, they do!
Q How do I access the lesson plans and videos?
A If, after logging in, you are not directly taken to the Members area (8 pictures), please click on ‘Members’ in the menu bar. After this, please click on any of the 8 pictures and you are in.
Q Can all teachers in the same school access Active Music through the same account?
A Yes. It is even possible for multiple teachers to use the videos at the same time.
Q Do you offer discounts for Local Authorities and Districts who want to buy multiple memberships for multiple schools?
A Yes. Please contact the Active Music Sales Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
