Hi everyone,

Artforms have released some fantastic music resources on their website. These are suitable for all children (have a look at curriculum music for home education). There are also great resources on there for children in Year 5 who are learning the ukulele and children who would usually be having instrumental lessons in school. Follow the link below to the Artforms website and go to Out of School – Home Learning Resources.

All the best
