This resource is an entire, ready to teach, scheme of work for a sequence of 6 fully differentiated lessons designed to teach students at KS3 level about the key musical features of the Blues. Although 6 lessons are planned, the unit may be easily expanded to suit the needs of your individual school.

The following resources are required to teach this unit:
– Access to projector/Interactive whiteboard with audio playback facilities;
– Piano in classroom;
– A selection of band instruments including keyboard, guitar, ukulele, drums, and bass guitar;
– Ukuleles – for whole class performance of the 12 bar blues (keyboards could be substituted);
– Individual spaces/practice rooms for students to work.

The unit is designed with an emphasis on practical work, with the majority of learning taking place through students working in small groups to compose a Blues song.

The resource contains all of the materials required to teach this unit, including a 48 slide PowerPoint presentation guiding through every lesson, differentiated worksheets, and lesson plans.

Unfortunately, for reasons of copyright, this resource does not have an accompanying audio CD or sound files. The PowerPoint presentation indicates places where audio files may be embedded for ease of teaching, and details of the track used is provided in the slide notes section on the relevant slide. If you do not wish to purchase these audio files, they are also easily available for free using a streaming service such as YouTube or Spotify.

Update 29/1/2017: Fixed an issue that prevented some pages displaying incorrectly on Apple devices.
