Pass the ball around the ring: A rhythmic game song for the Early Years.

Pass the ball around the ring: A rhythmic game song for the Early Years.

Musicbuds offers an exceptional range of original and well-crafted resources underpinning common musical objectives whilst focused on prominent EYFS themes. Aimed at all Early Years’ practitioners from class teachers, music specialists, teaching assistants, playgroup leaders to EAL and SEND support teachers. This song was written to encourage children to work as a team and concentrate for extended periods of time so that the flow of the ball is never interrupted. The anticipatory part at the end of the tune (when children don’t know how many times they are going to be asked to pass the ball on!) makes it fun. The strong pulse encourages young learners to pass the ball in time to the music. Can be used as a stand-alone game song; to establish the concept of pulse in music; as part of Circle Time; to enhance physical development such as crossing the midline or as Song 2 in Pack 2 of our 30-minute music and movement session. Each song includes: 1) A comprehensive lesson plan -highlighting EYFS and Music objectives covered -directions on classroom management -recommended list of props/visual aids -ideas for Extended learning  -inclusive planning for children with EAL/SEND profiles -different ways to deliver the material from Music/EYFS perspectives -formatted to allow easy cut-and-paste options into planning documents 2) Audio tracks - vocal & backing 3) Sheet music - for piano & guitar 4) Lyrics  -teachers’ lyrics with directions for classroom management  -illustrated children’s lyrics suitable for a Songbook

Master Builder: An original song set in Ancient Egypt

Master Builder: An original song set in Ancient Egypt

This original song has a rock 'n' roll feel to it. Suitable for Y2-8, it covers the stages of pyramid design from the original piles of stones through to the mastabas, step pyramids and ends with the Great Pyramid at Giza. It is full of facts and figures, puns and potential for actions. 'They'd float the stones on boats down the Nile They'd maybe rock'n' roll a bit but that was their style' 'Then came Cheops with his great crowd pleaser Forty million solid slabs make up the one at Giza'

Module 1A of Calisthenics for the Singing Voice (devised and arranged by William Hodgson)

Module 1A of Calisthenics for the Singing Voice (devised and arranged by William Hodgson)

Calisthenics for the Singing Voice is an extensive set of vocal exercises designed to fit into any vocal training scheme. The exercises consist of permutations and combinations of 4 vowels(eg new-ee-ay-a-ay-ee-oo ) set to melodic lines of varying complexity and sung with the tip of the tongue touching behind the lower teeth and the middle of the tongue arching up to touch just above the upper teeth to articulate the 'n' of 'new' (pronounced 'nyoo' not 'noo') (cf the 'gn' of 'lasagna' not the 'ng' of 'song' This use of this tongue orientation is related to the 'tongue controlled embouchre' technique required for natural trumpet playing. Interestingly the repetitive use of this 'gn' position soon leads to the using of the same position in other consonants traditionally involving tip of tongue on the upper teeth. The exercises are designed to facilitate execution of the the vowel modification and linkage ideas of Salvatore Marchesi, Shirley Eamons, Cornelius Reid, et al and draw on the Sinus Tone arguments of Earnest G White. The exercises are supported by full keyboard accompaniments and span the possible range of the singing voice presented in 6 overlapping pitch ranges. Any one version of a given exercise covers about an octave. The pattern is < Intro----exercise----modulation---exercise-----modulation etc. > The best way to see and hear the comprehensiveness of the programme is to visit this 'Box' link to view a demo video of the 18 'Medium Range (MR) exercises. ( < https://app.box.com/s/by561eanra8u3mbcnvayxcixva0lc560 > ) (Pitch span around middle C to topline F -male voice an octave lower) Suitable for all voices with judicious selection of pitch range. Module 1a and Module 1b introduce the patterns in a very accessible form and will allow rapid assesment of a pupil's basic vocal ability.
