A recently published study has found that non-specialist primary teachers report ‘lasting improvements’ in pupil behaviour and increased teacher confidence after receiving basic Kodály-inspired music training. 

As fears rise over lack of subject-specific development in teacher training, the study evaluated the results of a collaboration between music specialists and general primary teachers with the aim of developing their music skills, subject knowledge and confidence. 

Teachers in 55 primary schools in the North East of England took part in First Thing Music training, delivered by tutors from the British Kodály Academy in partnership with Tees Valley Music Service.
