This pack of 8 worksheets introduces a wide range of these devices, and includes two short composition tasks that give students an opportunity to practice using these devices before beginning their composition coursework or while preparing for the exam. Each of the worksheets that introduce new keywords come in two variants: one that has the definitions already provided, giving a useful reference or revision sheet; and one that provides a blank space for the student to write a definition for themselves. Where appropriate, each keyword is accompanied by a short musical example. Here is a breakdown of each worksheet: – Worksheet 1.1: An introduction to a range of melodic devices with definitions provided; – Worksheet 1.2: An introduction to a range of melodic devices with space for students to research and write their own definition; – Worksheet 1.3: A follow-up composition task, using the melodic devices covered in Worksheets 1.1 and 1.2; – Worksheet 2.1: An introduction to a range of melodic devices with specific focus on devices that can be used in motivic development; – Worksheet 2.1: An introduction to a range of melodic devices with specific focus on devices that can be used in motivic development, with definitions provided; – Worksheet 2.2: An introduction to a range of melodic devices with specific focus on devices that can be used in motivic development, with space for students to research and write their own definition; – Worksheet 2.3: A follow-up composition task, using the melodic devices covered in Worksheets 2.1 and 2.2; – Worksheet 3.1: Introduction to a range of additional melodic keywords not previously covered, with definitions provided; – Worksheet 3.2: Introduction to a range of additional melodic keywords not previously covered, with space for students to research and write their own definition.

This book provides a total of 50 music dictation tests that will help students to prepare for the dictation part of their AS or A Level music exam. The book begins with a series of easier tests that enable students to gradually develop their dictation skills, by first focussing on just the rhythm, then just the melody, before putting these skills together.

World War 2 Music (1930's - 1940's music)

This is a 6 lesson topic exploring the music listened to and played during World War 2. The children will develop an understanding of the styles of music civilians and soldiers were listening to during the 1930's and 1940's including Vera Lynn, George Formby, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong etc. They will also learn how to play a simple swing/jazz piece of music (C Jam Blues), develop their improvisation skills and sing a fun Glenn Miller inspired song. By the end of the topic the class will have a good understanding of the music of World War 2, the instruments that make a jazz/big band, the role music and songs played during the war, what swing music is and how to improvise using the pentatonic scale. Overall, this topic will help children develop a range of skills including listening and appraisal, singing, musical instrument playing, improvising and performing.

The Orchestra KS2 Music Scheme of Work/Topic

(2)
This is a unit of work that I created for use with Years 3, 4, 5 & 6. It spans six sessions, although it can run for A LOT longer if desired! Although I am a musician, it requires no musical knowhow whatsoever to teach! I was very conscious of this as I was sharing the resource with teachers who lacked confidence in their musical knowledge and skills. This unit focuses predominately on listening, appraisal and understanding, but there are also opportunities for composition and performance included. KS2 Music Attainment Targets Covered: • Pupils should be taught to listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory. • Appreciate and understand a wide range of high quality music drawn from a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians. • Develop an understanding of the history of music. There are also optional links to Science within each lesson, which enable you to cover the statutory requirements for teaching sound: • Identify how sounds are made, associating some of them with something vibrating. • Recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear. • Find patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produced it. • Find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it. • Recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases. As a Maths Specialist I also couldn’t resist throwing in a few sorting opportunities in the form of Venn and Carroll diagrams! Overview • The topic starts with an informal baseline assessment and ends with an informal end of unit assessment. • Each session focuses on a specific family of the orchestra. • Pupils enter the classroom each session to an example of music featuring that particular family, giving them the opportunity to appraise music and develop their own taste. • Pupils learn what each orchestral instrument is called, what it sounds like and how it produces sound. • Pupils become familiar with the terms pitch, timbre, vibration, dynamics and tempo. • Children conduct research and learn through activities; however, notes are included for classrooms where ICT/books are not readily available or where pupils lack sufficient research skills. • Activities are fun and active - with low entry and high ceiling for differentiation. • A wode range of activities, e.g. rapping, sorting, poster making, ‘Happy Families’, interactive whiteboard games, mind-maps and guessing games. • Very little marking is required, as the activities lend themselves to being carried out in a group and outcomes can often be photographed or filmed for evidence. Planning, powerpoint and all paper resources are included. I hope you enjoy!

A useful start for Year 8 (and even Year 7) pupils into Baroque music. The task is a comprehension with the document - students answer questions based on picking out information from within the comprehension. Pupils then summarise information from the questions to come up with 5 most important points about the Baroque era. This is a document I'd re-worded from Wikipedia, adding and omitting bits where I saw fit. There are all kinds of things that can be added on such as more about instrument inventions, more composers, pieces of music etc. Any feedback would be great, thanks!
