Enriching Musical Models of Development and Assessment
The final section of the book explores two issues of significant importance to music teachers: musical development and assessment. While chapters 10 and 11 focus particularly on Key Stage 3, the final chapter outlines approaches to teaching the 14–19 curriculum which focus on developing students as independent learners, ready to take ownership of their music making.[Page 110]
