Beethoven's (Slightly Higher and Easier) 5th Symphony

Beethoven's (Slightly Higher and Easier) 5th Symphony

This was designed for my very able Year 6 class, although this is probably a Key Stage 3 - 4 activity. It is a simplified and shorter Orff arrangement of the first movement of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony with a few extra instruments that the children play. If you would like to see the Musescore file it can be found here

Musical Futures | 7  Pop Songs

Musical Futures | 7 Pop Songs

Made suitable for Ukulele, Bass, Keyboard and singers. For guitarists, see the instrument chord book I’ve added in. (1) 7 Pop Songs is the Powerpoint in PDF format to ensure all fonts and imagas stay as they were intended. All 7 songs have been shortened slightly, keys changed and everything is labelled the same for Ukulele, Bass and Keyboard. (2) These are the sheets to go with the Powerpoints, easier to print out for in class, concerts… (3) Chord Book - Ukulele, Guitar, Bass and Keyboard with loads of different chords, all labelled to match so pupils can get straight to making music together!

Killer Queen differentiated revision grid (Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Music)

Killer Queen differentiated revision grid (Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Music)

This revision grid for “Killer Queen” by Queen contains all the key information specified by the exam board condensed into easily understandable “student speak” lists, with key information highlighted in bold. The information has also been separated into the “essential for all” basic facts in green, the more detailed info in blue and the high level “icing on the cake” stuff in pink. I find that this helps to direct students revision - for lower ability pupils it helps to say “just focus on the green, then work on the blue” to make the information seem more accessible. For higher ability pupils it helps prioritise their revision into what is the most crucial information to tackle before the higher level detail.

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.

Edexcel Set Works, we all love those analysis lessons! Do you students nod their heads as you explain the key terms and features for the millionth time, only to forget them 10 minutes later? Have you spent countless hours rewriting revision sheets and worksheets for them to scrunch up in their bags? Are your powerpoint not reaching them at home? Let’s reach them anywhere their phone is - everywhere! Why not try an aural resource for musical learning?

Cover worksheet or Homework task for GCSE Music students

Cover worksheet or Homework task for GCSE Music students

This is PowerPoint presentation work, so students will need access to computers. This is suitable for a double lesson cover [or two single lessons] or homework. GCSE students are required to show an understanding of the capabilities of their instrument; some understanding of the composer’s intentions regarding cultural influences and the performance venue. They also need to show some understanding of the effect of audience, time and place when performing or composing. This work covers some of the background knowledge they need regarding their instrument and performance techniques. There is an extension task for discussing the relationship between music, and its cultural context, that has been performed over time. 8 slides are asked for - clear task instructions are provided for each slide, as well as ideas to help students focus in the right area.
