Ukulele Chord Diagrams (Open only, no bar chords)

Ukulele Chord Diagrams (Open only, no bar chords)

I created this configuration of stickers for ukuleles so that children can learn to understand where they need to place their fingers when playing certain chords. I started with C major (green), F major (blue) and G major (red). From here, there are a lot of songs which can be played using these 3 chords alone (blues songs and most nursery rhymes) but the other chords show combinations of different coloured stickers. The numbers relate to which fingers (on the childs' LEFT hand) which should be pressing down on what string(s) and fret(s).

Arriba. Year 7 keyboard.

Arriba. Year 7 keyboard.

I designed this powerpoint for year 7s who are just starting to learn about the keyboard. The resource is based around Arriba (courtesy of Jazz in the classroom) and uses the pentatonic scale. They accompanying worksheet has been created so that teachers can sign off each section as the pupils complete them. Good starting point for improvising also.

Sleigh Dash (Christmas musical notation note value game)

Sleigh Dash (Christmas musical notation note value game)

Race to fill Santa's sleigh in this fast-paced musical notation game. Santa has received a lot of questions in the children's Christmas letters this year. If you can help him answer them, he'll be able to collect enough presents to fill his sleigh! Each player draws seven value cards (quavers/eighth notes, crotchets/quarter notes, dotted crotchets/dotted quarter notes, minims/half notes, dotted minims/dotted half notes and semibreves/whole notes) as well as the equivalent rests. The first player to answer Santa's question correctly, using their cards, wins a present. Santa's questions feature filling a bar in 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 time, finding note and rest equivalents, addition and subtraction with musical notes, and balancing a seesaw with equivalent note lengths. Presents are drawn at random - your younger pupils will love seeing what they get. The winner is either the first person to win x number of presents or the person with the most presents after x minutes have elapsed. Sleigh Dash will give your students the practice they need to know their note values inside out.
