The embedded videos link to my private YouTube channel and are not able to be found without the link. Should the embedding not work, I have also attached links within the stars

KS3 Film Music Scheme of Work

KS3 Year 9 Film Music Scheme of Work including 7 lesson plans with resources, film clips, worksheets and homework tasks. This scheme is designed to be used in the music classroom with basic instruments, although it can be easily adapted to use in a computer room with music software if available, which works well. Aimed at year 9 students, although this would work with other year groups if it fits into your annual planning. I have used this for many years with much success as the scheme lends itself to evidence based analysis and review from teacher and pupil including self and peer evaluation, ideal for Ofsted to see a clear progression of learning.

Music - describing film music.....

Our topic was 'Hollywood' and after doing a lesson on identifying instrument families; I did this lesson with my P7 class. They all listened to each excerpt of music, and then answered the questions on the sheet.\n\nI purposefully picked music from different genres of film to see if they could associate the music with the film genre. \n\nHope it's useful!
