This paper considers the ways in which school music education has been a topic
of discussion in terms of what its purposes are, and how its content matters to a
range of stakeholders. It considers historical views placing music as singing and
musical appreciation, and then moves to a discussion of what would be relevant
and appropriate in contemporary curricula. It concludes by recommending
that classroom music teachers would benefit from subject-specific continuing
professional development in curriculum construction, especially for Key Stage 3
music teaching and learning.
