Teacher Techniques: Pupils with additional support needs

BBC Bring the Noise, with the support from teachers and experts, presents a set of introductory music lessons for use with young disabled learners or those with additional support needs.

Watch as beatboxer Bigg Taj briefly outlines the activities in the upcoming episodes and presents a series of starter tips so that you’re ready to deliver a music class, even if you’ve never led one before.

Each film is accompanied by a downloadable lesson plan and lyric sheet so you have everything you need to support your lesson. Each activity in the films has been inspired by one of the exclusive songs found on BBC Bring the Noise and are compatible with Play It!, the digital interactive learning tool.
