I am a teacher, flautist and composer, with 25 years teaching experience in primary schools as a class teacher, music leader, Advanced Skills Teacher and Headteacher. I am a teacher-assessor for 'Music Medals' from ABRSM, teaching flute, recorder and theory of music from beginner to advanced welcoming all students of all ages. I strongly believe that every child has the right to access regular music provision and that music has an essential part to play in all of our lives.

Plan B: 30 rhythms on the note B for beginning ensembles This resource is intended to be used as flexibly as possible by teachers and their students. The rhythms may support students preparing to take ABRSM ‘Music Medals’ tests. The set includes: Teacher Notes; Ten variations for unison or solo playing; Twenty variations written as duets; Parts for: Treble Clef 1 and Treble Clef 2. Instrumentation: The notation is for any non-transposing instruments that use the treble clef and any tuned and untuned percussion instruments. Parts are included to allow for maximum flexibility. Any of the parts may be combined in different ways for unison, solo, duet, trio, quartet and so on for any number of students in order to develop ensemble playing. I have made some suggestions of how to use these rhythms creatively, however, the creative opportunities are endless and I am sure that teachers and students will interpret these resources in many ways.
