Use Ravel's Bolero to help teach KS2 music

Written by animateur Rachel Leach, the pack is designed to help you use Ravel's Bolero in the classroom as a creative tool, and features easy warm-up activities, a step-by-step guide to composition and links to amazing HD footage of the LSO performing Ravel's famous work.
