Notation - basic

This 'easy to use' resource provides step by step instructions for children to learn how to read music. It starts with introducing words with different rhythms. i.e. fly - one, spider - two, caterpillar - 4. Lady-bird has two fast and one slow and Grass- hopper is the same reversed. These rhythms are first clapped and then played on untuned instruments and finally played on tuned instruments using the pentatonic scale of C D E G A. The SMART explains it all. There are sheets with bars for children to compose their own music. I recommend laminating these for multiple use. This resource has a lot of scope and can be used from Year 2 to Year 6 depending on the complexity of the rhythms. I wouldn't recommend years 2 and 3 using tuned instruments at this stage.

Greensleeves Rhythm - Ukulele

Greensleeves Rhythm - Ukulele

This is designed for the slightly beyond beginner. Compromised of the backing rhythm of Greensleeves. You will have supply the original song or play it yourself. Please note, children will not be taught melody but will provide backing rhythm. Straight forward but will take some understanding of Greensleeves and good timing! Good luck!
