The Contemporary Music Course is a stunning teaching and learning resource. It is not simply contemporary.

It is comprehensive, carefully structured and flexible. Being completely sequenced, it caters for abilities ranging from beginner to advanced. Further, it is suitable for individual, group and class use.

My teaching career involved students mainly aged 9-13years. Many of those students would have improved their musical knowledge and skills considerably had they had access to initial TCMC course lessons, and thus been even better prepared to maximise their gains during secondary school music instruction.

Had I, as principal, known about TCMC before my retirement, the course would definitely have been a “must have” school resource, to enrich both the teachers professional development and the school's music programme.

I have no hesitation in recommending TCMC to all in the teaching profession.
