These classical tracks for marching are perfect for including as part of any soldier themed lesson or even just playing on a rainy afternoon, banging some biscuit tins and blowing of some steam!
Marching is a fantastic musical activity for kids. It combines music, movement, listening and imagination and so provides a wealth of educational benefits.
Of course there are many excellent marches to choose from, and it’s never been easier to access music with youtube and spotify etc. But these are the ones that I have found never fail to get everyone marching along with gusto!
