Hooks and Riffs: Lukas Graham's 7 Years (with Literacy Resources)

I created this resource for a Year 8 scheme of work on hooks and riffs in popular music. Literacy is a big focus at my school, so I created a differentiated resource which introduced the song. Students enjoyed completing this as an introduction into the context of the song, before watching the music video and learning how to decode and perform using the worksheet. The bundle includes:- Literacy resource, differentiated for 3 levels linked to reading ages and each with a SMOG score.- Performance worksheet for the riff, including bass and treble clef and guidance on how to decode.

Samba Band

Samba Band

I designed this resource for Year 8 when working on a 'music for special occasions' scheme of work. The melody is based on 'Samba de Janeiro' and encourages students to use a good technique when playing this on a piano/keyboard. There are also a variety of rhythms for students to learn, with accompanying phrases to help them remember them quickly.The grid allows self-differentiation when working in small groups. This tool is useful for mini-plenaries and allows students to reflect on their progress and set new targets for their rehearsal time, ticking off boxes as they work to show progress.

Hooks and Riffs: Uptown Funk

Hooks and Riffs: Uptown Funk

I planned this lesson to teach KS3 how to use hooks and riffs in popular song. This works well when showing how short ideas can be used and layered to create a full song.This worksheet includes notation for the bassline, 2 additional chord layers (syncopated and dotted rhythm) and the hook. There is also a grid of 9 tasks which students can opt for.There is also a GarageBand project bundled in, which can be used to demonstrate the layers separately and together.
