Shrek Samba!

Shrek Samba!

Lesson on Samba with differentiated versions for less and more able. Unscramble the key word starter, recap about dynamics to lead into performance and then different rhythms for each instrument in a Samba kit with a corresponding phrase for a Shrek character. For performance, lower abilities use the phrase and higher abilities use just the rhythmic notation. Groups then rehearse and perform this. Two extension tasks (add a break and a change in dynamics). Self and peer assessment slide at the end with sentence starters and word bank for less able, and a word bank with literacy related reminders for more able. Lesson objectives included for schools that require this.

Suite en re by Robert de Visee arranged for solo ukulele

Suite en re by Robert de Visee arranged for solo ukulele

Complete suite arranged beautifully for ukulele by court musician of Louis XIV and XV. Some of the movements, such as prelude and minuet 1 are suitable for relative beginners, none of the pieces are harder than grade three. The renaissance lute and early guitar music transposed well to ukulele and the overall sound is surprisingly authentic. A little gem of a suite.

Awesome Rhythm: Everything is Awesome Scheme of Work and Resources

Awesome Rhythm: Everything is Awesome Scheme of Work and Resources

Are you sick of tee-ta-tea-tea-ing your way around rhythm? Do KS3 students STILL NOT UNDERSTAND rhythm symbols? Need to bridge the gap between practical and music technology? This scheme of work is for you. I’ve designed a scheme of work for a KS3 class who have been introduced to the names of rhythm symbols and the idea that they have duration, but need some revision and a modern approach to learning it. This scheme of work lasts a half term (five lessons minimum) and covers revision of rhythm symbols (Semibreve, Minim, Crotchet, Quaver, Rests, Ties and Dots) in a fun way relating to lego. It also covers an introduction into music technology (I have used Garageband but this can be easily tranferred to Cubase or Sibelius etc), texture, and the idea of melody, counter melody and harmony. It can be a fun independent learning project or used for ensemble performances too. The scheme of work ends with a simple assessment with a grid for teachers to comment on expected progress and a feedback form. There is mastery style tick sheet also. There are three extension tasks attached to lessons 2, 3 and 4. Note: I have actually done lesson one with physical lego bricks and it has gone down a treat! No more issues there! I have embedded audio files into the powerpoint but we all know how that can go so I’ve attached that here for reentering too. There is also a copy of every Garageband file for displaying on the board or editing how you like.

Ten Simple Classical Guitar Pieces Arranged for ukulele

Ten Simple Classical Guitar Pieces Arranged for ukulele

I have put together a collection of popular classical guitar tunes arranged for the ukulele. These are all relatively easy, and in fact the first three tunes are suitable for absolute beginners. These tunes will be familiar to guitar teachers and particularly useful to those who teach ukulele to children as an introduction to learning classical guitar. Again for low G, although the first piece is only on top three strings so suitable for soprano ukulele.

Reading and Understanding: Justin Timberlake

Reading and Understanding: Justin Timberlake

This product was created with the hope of teaching children about Justin Timberlake. It has everything they need to know, including a range of material to allow them to engage with his music and form an opinion on the content. Included: Pre-assessment tool: A.K.A a KWL (What I KNOW, what I WANT to know and what I LEARNED). This allows the children to create questions that they want to know about JT’s life and can put them in charge of their own learning, making this activity very child-cantered. When children finish the topic, they can return to their KWL sheet and fill in what they have LEARNED. Biography: a 1 page biography of Justin Timberlake’s life and music career. Comprehension – a set of questions to allow children to engage further with the material on Justin Timberlake. Questions will ask children to locate information directly from the text, but also encourage them to use their inference skills and dig deeper. STRAND: Listening and Responding: using YouTube, encourage a class discussion on the song and guide them to respectfully disagree with each other, while backing up their answers with reasons. Model to children how to respond to song by discussing how it made you feel and the effect of the pace, lyrics etc. Your opinion matters!!: this is an opportunity for children to give their genuine opinion on some songs by JT. Encourage them to be honest and guide them into how to explain their answers. Design Time: Children can design their very own album cover for one of Justin Timberlake’s albums. Just for Fun- A word search Finally - a 1 page document explaining how I used each sheet and some ideas in how you can use it best in your classroom too :) I really enjoy making fun resources for my children so I really hope you enjoyed this as much as we did! Please leave a review as this will help me to help you. I’d love to hear how you used this resource in your classroom :) Fabulous Boarders are from: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Krista-Wallden-Creative-Clips
