Uptown Funk
Resources for developing class or group ensemble using Uptown Funk.

I'm using this as a year 8 intro to Musical Futures which we do in year 9. Students pick some options in year 9.

I print the ppt slides for keyboard, bass, uke etc and set up a practice room for each instrument. They independently learn the parts in groups from the help sheets. Then they come together as a class.

I see y8 once a fortnight for 100 mins which is why there are 3 lessons for the term. You may wish to bulk out more if you teach once a week or more.

Take or leave the theory. I only have it with the scheme because we start grade 1 theory in year 9 and again, trying to prep students for if they pick us as an option. I adapted the booklet from downloading it from TES a while ago. Wish I could remember who from because it's brilliant.

Please use and adapt as required and enjoy.
Our kids are loving it.
