BBC Bitesize for secondary
Loads of practical steps for music-making and inspiring examples from famous musicians and artists. These guides are designed to enable 11-14-year-old students to work through at their own pace, whatever their level, to develop their practical skills and get inspired about the potential of a career in music. There’s also a “music for SEN” section.
The resources cover composition, performance, improvisation and evaluation skills and are ideal for short or long-term projects in the classroom or as homework. Topics include How to write a song, How to rap and Percussion. We’ve also teamed up with Ten Pieces to create five companion guides with detailed steps on making jazz music, minimalism, a Doctor Who theme, film composition and fusion music.

As always, the BBC has a lot of high-quality resources – which are coming into their own!
