BUILDING CHORDS and SEQUENCES (INTERMEDIATE #2 - Music Theory)

Part of a sequence of videos that demonstrate how chords a built and used. From beginner to advanced the videos cover building triads to inversions and voice leading. This has been effective with ages 12-13 (year 8) but could be used at any age dependent of level. Music terminology is presented in an easy to grasp manner without the ‘dumbing down’ experienced in some videos. Would make a great Google Classroom resource.

Reinforcing notation, rests, and time signatures for year 7 and 8. Good for cover.

Just sit down - be quiet and do the work while I get on with the next load of data!! Designed to do just this but actually has really really helped! Students enjoyed the puzzle layout and how they could, if higher ability finish the entire sheet. Covers and revises key concepts of notation. I could mark an entire class AND give feedback AND get them to respond within one lesson. Have also used some classes to peer assess with our schools stickers attached. Boom! Box ticked! With lower ability students I handed out 1 per group of 2 or three to bolster confidence and it worked a charm - then giving those students who played an instrument the “privilege” of acting as my deputy. PRINT ON A3 then fold in half.

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.
