Description

"This book will not only be useful for those designing a new department from scratch – it will also be of considerable value for those who want to adapt and reconfigure their existing spaces to make them fit for purpose for 21stC. music teaching and learning". David Ashworth, Teachingmusic/Musical Bridges Consultant.

 

There are many important factors to be considered when designing music accommodation for secondary schools – such as the location of the department, room adjacencies, the layout of individual spaces, and above all the acoustic environment. In this book these issues are explained and illustrated in a way which is understandable to both technical and non-technical audiences.

Five informative and in-depth case studies demonstrate a range of types of music departments with different teaching and learning approaches. Design solutions are explained, plans illustrate the layout of the department and acoustic test results are given.

This new guide (which replaces Building Bulletin 86) will help all those involved in procuring and delivering secondary school music spaces – including local authorities schools and designers – to deliver well-designed music accommodation.

  • It is a revision of Building Bulletin 86 Music Accommodation in Secondary Schools: A Design Guide, published in 1997
  • Discusses issues that arise when considering both new and existing accommodation
  • Concentrates on needs of 11 to 16 year old pupils, including those with special educational needs
  • Case studies illustrating range of types of music departments, showing different design approaches, including an SEN school
  • Changes since the first edition include: the opportunities for wider use of music spaces, the increased importance of environmental design factors, and curricular and technological advances
  • Architectural drawings show design of music spaces and exemplar adjacencies, detailed servicing considerations including heating, acoustics and ventilation
  • For all those involved in procuring and delivering music spaces for secondary schools: local authorities, head teachers, heads and staff of music departments, and their designers and advisers.
