OFSTED have consistently identified composing as a less well taught aspect of the music curriculum. This concise and accessible book shows teachers how they can recognise and encourage music making in the classroom, and so address all the needs of the National Curriculum for music. The book is based on research that meets all the needs of the National Curriculum for music. It is also based on research into best practice and makes clear suggestions for classroom practice for teachers of children aged 4 to 14 years.

'With great delicacy and intelligence, Children Composing 4-14 shows how we can become more attentive and so more useful in the support we offer to children who are employing instruments or voices for their own expressive purposes. The book is rooted in the realities of classroom life ... above all, it bears witness to an informed and idealistic passion that hard-pressed and test-challenged children need and deserve. - Tom Deveson, Times Educational SupplementFrom the Back Cover:
Composing is part of the mainstream music curriculum for many children, yet children's music does not receive the same attention as their art or creative writing.
Children Composing 4-14 traces the ways in which composing can be organised and taught within the school music curriculum, drawing on children's own music-making activities. This practical book looks at how teaching composing can enable children to progress by acquiring musical skills and understanding, whilst developing their own sense of musical purpose. One of the main concerns of the book is the need to sustain continuity and quality in children's composing experience as they move through each phase of music education.
Children's composing is considered in relation to the wider musical context in which they grow up, including cultural differences in composing roles and in perceptions of composing and composers. Projects that bring children into contact with professional composers are critically examined, and suggestions are made for ways of ensuring that composing in schools is rooted in the musical world outside. Children Composing 4-14 is intended for teachers of music in primary and secondary schools, composers who work in education, parents, carers and youth leaders with an interest in children's music.
