Key Quest!! 3 weeks of awesome tunes.

Key Quest!! 3 weeks of awesome tunes.

Artists include: Jessie J, Eminem, DNCE, Adele, Hozier, UB40/Elvis, Crazy Frog, Simpsons, Somewhere over the Rainbow (sounds AWESOME when all are keyboards on the string sound!!) and Harry Potter. The following are covered: moderato, staccato, leggier, legato, syncopation, reggae, off-beat, broken chord, sequence, accompaniment etc. I laminate the sheets and it usually lasts for 3 to 4 lessons allowing for individual work but all tunes work well as ensemble pieces. The sheet encourages using other sounds to introduce and build on texture etc.It has worked brilliantly with year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 - obviously getting more picky the higher up you go.

Notation - basic

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.
