Two units of work - Music Theory and Basic Keyboard skills for year 7. It contains activities, assessment criteria, music passports for self assessment, teacher and peer assessment templates and two assessments to go with the units; there are extension tasks for some activities. The performances pieces for Basic Keyboard skills have scope for differentiation as the pieces can either be played by reading just the treble clef or both the treble and bass clef or with the treble clefs and playing the chords.
The new assessment criteria has been written to follow Life after Levels - Emerging, Developing, Secure, Mastery but these can be adapted to suit your school.
A scheme of work, student booklet and information booklet for year 7 students. This is a revised version of the earlier documents posted and the content moves a little faster and relates to the New National Curriculum.
I have taken out the PLTS images and Baseline Assessment as they are not mine to share.
I will add the resources for the keyboard skills as soon as possible!
Resources set up for independent learning at keyboards.\n\nStudents pick and chose which tunes to work out, and motivate themselves to make progress. \n\nTunes from films, classics, songs they'll know.
Technical exercises in composition, such as the harmonisation of a chorale in the style of J. S. Bach feature as an option in the majority of A Level Music specifications.
This worksheet introduces some of the key stylistic issues in chorale harmonisation, including good spacing of chords, the avoidance of parallel fifths and octaves, and the use of melodic decoration such as passing notes. The worksheet is broken down into five tasks, the first four of which are preceded by useful tutorial sections, that explain the theory behind what is required in the following task. Each of the tasks increase in difficulty, leading to the harmonisation of a complete chorale melody. The worksheet is ideal for use both within the classroom, and as homework, and each of the tasks are self contained so may be used in isolation.
The five tasks are:
– Task 1: The completion of the alto and tenor part of a series of chords, using good spacing and doubling the correct notes;
– Task 2: The complete voicing of a series of specified chords, using the rules of doubling and spacing previously learned in Task 1;
– Task 3: To gain practice in spotting parallel and hidden fifths and octaves in students' own work, by highlighting mistakes in a series of given chorale harmonisations;
– Task 4: To rewrite a the alto, tenor and bass parts of a given harmonisation, to include passing notes and other decoration;
– Task 5: To complete a full harmonisation of a given chorale melody, using all of the techniques learned previously.
