Busy days at Deltaviolin…

Preparations for the first formal INSET and practical demonstration class using The Black Spot Flip Book intensified as the day approached. In the event a wonderfully warm reception given by ten staff from Schola Europaea and hugely enthusiastic response from the class of 28 Year 4 children to the Black Spot Flip Book.

The session started with a talk and practical workshop with staff with great discussion surrounding the task of composing and the even bigger task of teaching composing… “Maybe OFSTED have simply set the bar too high?” suggested one of the staff. Maybe…

However, it could be that the way composition is taught has to be re-thought. If the bar seems too high, should we be taking smaller and simpler steps towards achieving the final end goal? All the time making the obvious connection to what is a heroic undertaking, a curriculum for music.


All in all, a wonderfully stimulating and thought provoking afternoon with lots of fun, laughter, concentration and open-minded considerations given by all attending. As a result, the remaining stock of the current edition of the Flip Book is getting very low… less than 30 copies remaining!
