Military Music and Kneller Hall

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world - Nelson Mandela

The five sets of learning materials tackle a different subject each.

The history of Kneller Hall and the Royal Military School of Music: Music for Morale, Ceremony and Celebration, Music as Communication, and Remembrance.

Within each session you will find links to video interviews specially recorded with veteran and serving Army musicians, and we hope you will enjoy hearing their first-hand testimony which brings to life the rich stories Kneller Hall has to tell. You will also see planned thinking points to stimulate classroom discussions, and task pointers for the activities associated with each session. The activities themselves are located within a separate workbook, and available to you to download and use with your learners – they include individual, pair and group tasks, research and written work, homework and family involvement.

"Music can change the world because it can change people."

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO CONSIDER THIS
Legasee is one of the first consolidated attempts to document the war-time experiences of men and women who have served their country.  While remembrance ceremonies and battle anniversaries are regularly reported on TV,  this coverage rarely focuses on veterans’ personal experiences for more than a few seconds and is of limited value as an educational tool or a record of individual achievement. Legasee aims to cover military life in much more depth by focusing on personal stories and viewpoints. If you think this work is important, please consider a donation. PLEASE DONATE NOW
