Inspirational School Music

Robert Heath BA MA PGCE

Rob Heath is an engaging, colourful and highly skilled music leader working with children aged 5-11, who has taught music in many primary schools in York and the surrounding area.

Making use of musical styles and instruments from around the world, including African Djembes, Japanese Taiko Drumming, World Music and Folksong, Boomwhackers, Samba and Trash Drumming, Singing, Music Recording Technology, and a variety of musical games, Rob focuses on activities that truly inspire children to take part and that all pupils can engage with.

Currently Rob works with the Ebor Academy Trust, a group of schools North, East and West Yorkshire setting high standards in primary education.

Costs and finance

Pressure on school budgets can make specialist music provision appear unaffordable. However, as a qualified primary school teacher, Rob provides musical teaching as part of PPA cover provision, as well as utilising the pupil premium. In some cases, it may be possible to approach funding bodies and charities for support.

Rob is happy to work with schools to make the most of their music budgets and ensure that all pupils receive a substantial and inspirational musical education during their primary years.
