Hey Music Teachers!
Want to free up your time to be your most amazing self? Want to join a community of teachers receiving high quality resources & CPD?
Mighty Musical Membership
Designed by music teachers for music teachers to save you time, reduce your workload and eliminate that teacher overwhelm.
And all for the price of a coffee and cake.
Time & Resources
You'd love to relax and binge-watch Netflix with your friends and family in the evenings, but you've still got lessons to plan.....
There are slides to make, examples to find and sheet music examples to create. And that's after you've actually come up with an engaging and worthwhile idea in the first place!
Workload & Training
You'd like to eat some lunch and have a cuppa (and maybe even a toilet break!!) but you haven't quite finished making your resources for this afternoon....
And you can't even remember the last time you were allowed 'out' to get some training!
Overwhelm & Isolation
You'd love to have someone to help you understand all those new specs and school policies. You feel a little alone and have so much to do....
Even if there are other music teachers in your school there's not much time for casual chat or to bounce ideas around. And if you're a one person department...when was the last time you actually saw another music teacher???
How can the Mighty Musical Membership Help Me?
With access to 4 incredible libraries of resources you'll never be alone or stuck for ideas again! Need inspiration or help? Check out the schemes of work, or pop along to the next virtual department meeting.

Hi, I’m Fran and I’ve been a teacher for 15 years, making music with children of all ages from babies to teenagers.
Although I like to think I'm quite organised and good at planning, last year, with the rest of my performing arts department absent, everything came to a head. I planned, assessed, marked, made resources, ran productions and clubs and analysed data until I could take no more.
Even though I was teaching a new course with a spec I found difficult to follow I was not allowed any time or budget for training. I had not had any music specific CPD for 2 years.
I was overworked and overwhelmed and very alone. I tried to buy or download free resources from the internet but generally found they were poorly made, inflexible or uneditable. So I took a different approach, taking a larger topic such as 'Baroque Music' and making it 'Pick 'n' Mix' and highly adaptable by laying out all the contextual information alongside composition, listening and performance ideas. I could then pick parts of this for KS2 visits, teach it to KS3 and even take parts and use for GCSE classes.
So now, as well as still teaching (in a different school now, in case you were wondering), I help others to overcome the problems I faced, by supplying flexible, high quality and fully editable resources and CPD all in one place.
