FREE ONLINE TEACHER RESOURSES 
AND LIVE WORKSHOPS

As part of an ongoing partnership between Music for Youth and the National Union of Teachers (NUT), we have commissioned a suite of resources that are aimed at non-specialist teachers and leaders teaching music to 6-11 year olds.

Infinity Back to Bass Resource Pack

Back to Bass is the BRAND NEW free downloadable resource written to support creative music making in the primary school classroom, generously sponsored by the NUT. This resource is designed for both specialist and non-specialist primary teachers and provides tips and a step-by-step project teaching guide for collaborative composing from the bass line up.

Infinity LIVE Back to Bass - Tuesday 5 July - National Festival, Birmingham

Infinity LIVE is a music workshop based on the Back to Bass resource. Bring your class to this special day of music making, which will include: 

  • A hands-on music workshop in the CBSO Centre led by Richard Frostick - teacher, workshop leader and choral director. This will involve classes preparing a short musical phrase or rhythm in advance of the event that will be used in the workshop.
  • Tickets to Music for Youth's National Festival where you can hear groups of inspiring young musicians perform in Birmingham's most prestigious concert halls. This could either be watching some of the UK’s most exciting choirs in the Town Hall or infant & junior groups in Symphony Hall.
