  • providing an appropriate classroom for music making to take place
  • providing an appropriate range of pitched, unpitched classroom instruments, sound makers and beaters along with their location
  • providing access to white / smart board technology and speakers
  • providing internet access, Wi-Fi codes and any possible limitations e.g. filters
  • liaising with the teacher about any specific requirements connected with the curriculum, to enable effective planning to be carried out e.g. termly topics or cross curricular themes
  • providing class registers
  • providing a TA who knows the class to advise on specific pupil issues and the implementation of the school behaviour policy
  • advising the music teacher about any pupils with special learning needs, which may affect the learning of those pupils
