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.

Fiddle Instrument Wordsearch Music Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Fiddle Instrument Wordsearch Music Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Fiddle'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
