pBuzz Resource awarded 5 stars by Teach Primary


We are delighted to announce that the KS1 Music Teaching Resource which we developed in conjunction with award-winning brass instrument developers Warwick Music Group, has won the Music category of the 2018 Teach Primary Resource Awards with the maximum rating of 5 stars!

Developed with mini-musician’s little hands in mind, the creators of pBuzz, Warwick Music Group, wanted to enable any teacher to use the instrument as a resource, whether they were a musician or not. Working in partnership with Music Education Solutions a step-by-step guide and support system for schools was designed.

The resulting pBuzz KS1 Music Teaching Resource introduces pBuzz to Years 1 and 2 through lesson plans, assessment trackers, teacher support videos, specially composed music, teacher development materials and cross-curricular activities. The resource covers the entire National Curriculum for Music at KS1, and is specifically designed for use by non-specialist teachers who may lack confidence in teaching music.

Writing about the resource, music category judge Gary Spruce said “The accompanying lesson plans are pedagogically sound and are well structured to support children’s musical development.”

Further information about the Teach Primary Resource Awards, including the full list of winners and all the judges’ comments can be found in the next edition of Teach Primary, which is due out on 12th October 2018.

Music Education Solutions would like to thank our amazing team without whom we could not have developed this award-winning resource: Elizabeth Stafford (Writer / Vocalist / Project Leader); Kay Charlton (Composer / Trumpeter / Music Producer); Jenni Axtell (Writer); Dave Smith (Video Producer); Steve Pretty (Recording / Mastering); Susie Riddell (Presenter); Thomas Green (Guitarist).
