GCSE Music 9-1 Editable MusicTABOO Cards

GCSE Music 9-1 Editable MusicTABOO Cards

Create an example Taboo-style game for GCSE students based on one of the SetWorks and then give them the template to create their own. Colour coded using the same analysis colour scheme used in all the resources I have developed. Add a bonus reward for the students who can give examples related to the word on their card. Adapt for KS3 or even KS5. Offered here as an editable Word Document. Print double-sided on thin card flipped on the long edge. NB. It looks a little strange in the preview/info but I know the file is fine in Word 2016 and so I’d be interested to hear from anyone who tries downloading whether it works successfully. I hope you like it!

Music GCSE (9-1) Edexcel: AOS 4- Afro Celt 'Release' -Technology

Music GCSE (9-1) Edexcel: AOS 4- Afro Celt 'Release' -Technology

Afro Celt ‘Release’ -Technology -GCSE (9-1) Edexcel Pearson.- NEW 2018 This interative activity requires Logic Pro and an entire lesson to allow for the exploration of the **Music Technology **used in Afro Celt Sound System ‘Release’. Much of the piece is made by looping! The worksheet goes through the process of recreating the introduction of ‘Release’. The introduction starts with a drone that uses two different synth tones, hard-panned L and R. Both synths are being filtered with low pass filters- all these features are covered in this resource. This whole lesson task works really well when modelled and taught as a whole class workshop (students participating in each of the stages of the process). Enjoy and please rate!

Music GCSE (9-1) Edexcel: AOS 2 Vocal Music- Purcell : Ground Bass

Music GCSE (9-1) Edexcel: AOS 2 Vocal Music- Purcell : Ground Bass

Purcell: ‘Music for a While’ -GCSE (9-1) Edexcel Pearson.- NEW 2018 Ground Bass is a structural and harmonic device (also known as basso ostinato), used widely in both instrumental and vocal music in the Baroque era. In this lesson, students will explore the features of Purcell’s 3-bar ground bass in ‘Music for a While’ and apply their knowledge in composing their own ground basses. Objective(s): To understand that ground bass can act as a structural, as well as, a harmonic device in Baroque music. All/Most/Few: All will learn to recognise the features of the 3-bar ground bass in Music for a While, and apply similar features in their own ground bass compositions. Some will be able to create a full-length ground bass with a perfect cadence at the end to be looped. Few will be able to add additional continuo chords. *Differentiation: All students will compose a simple bassline of at least 8 notes. More able students will attempt to elaborate their basslines using shorter note values (quavers), using a mixture of steps and leaps (including some semitone chromaticisms if in a minor key)

Music GCSE (9-1) Edexcel: AOS 2 Vocal Music- Purcell : Baroque Melodies

The resources below focuses on Baroque Melodic features and setting music to text. Baroque vocal music techniques for composition can be explored here by setting a story that interests students from the world of fantasy and myth to set some of the words from Harry Potter to music. **Introduction activity: **“Have a listen to Music for a while and in your tables come up with one or two melodic Baroque features you can hear.” **Main Task: **Following the instructions on the Harry Potter worksheet, create a melody to a chosen two lines of text. ( 20 minutes), using the techniques discussed as a class. Ask the class to keep their melodies for later, to come back to them after examples of word painting are covered as an additional technique (you may return to this in the next lesson).

A fun colourful teaching and revision  of notation. Also intro to orchestra.

A fun colourful teaching and revision of notation. Also intro to orchestra.

Lower school. Follow Rosie and Hoops as they help Professor Blithe work out the clues to the next mystery!! Resource introduces students to rhythm sums, notation spellings, composers, instruments of the orchestra, sharps and flats, and notes on the keyboard. Not going to lie - could mark this during the lesson that got the powers that be off my back, looked impressive when there were 350 of these all marked with feedback. Students enjoyed it and the lower ability GCSE enjoyed doing it “felt like doing a puzzle in a magazine”. It has massively helped with writing of sharps and flats and understanding of naturals.

Introduction to Band Work - Another Day in Paradise. Includes chords, tabs, lyrics & explanations

Introduction to Band Work - Another Day in Paradise. Includes chords, tabs, lyrics & explanations

This is a great project for classes who are being introduced to band work for the first time. You can teach all of the parts of this song including the ostinato line, chords on the piano and ukulele, lyrics for singers. There is also a very clear structure for bands to follow as well as lessons on how to play a chord and follow a chord structure. When teaching this topic as a whole class, student are very often able to go into bands and put the parts together as a rock/pop band. I always teach this as the final topic for my Year 8s at the end of the Summer Term ready for Year 9.

The Greatest Showman 10 minute medley

The Greatest Showman 10 minute medley

This is a 10 minute medley that I have edited and produced. It would be great for a school performance or an assembly activity. The songs included (in order) are: The greatest show, Million Dreams, This is Me and Come Alive. There are 3 files to this resource: The Song Sheet the lyrics are in two colours, Black for solo singing parts that can be split to suit your group and Blue for the ensemble parts. The Medley MP3 This is a medley arranged by myself, it is a backing track but the original singers remain for the ensemble parts just to give the kids a bit of help. The Medley with singing MP3 I have recorded the song with vocals to show where the solo parts come in. I performed this medley with KS1 and Lower KS2 children. I split the solo parts into 3-4 lines each child, either alone or in little groups. They had no trouble learning their parts and the added ensemble vocals gave the volume needed for the big chorus parts. Please leave a review and happy singing!
