KS3 module for music theatre. Covers key terms needed for basic GCSE includes listening composing and practical activities. Practical is differentiated allowing students to create their own bass lines and use their ears to work out next few bars.
Students start off by saying they don’t know anything but by the time some prompts have been given they are well away.
For the naming sources sheet I play snippets from:
Oliver, Les Mis, Jungle Book, Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and Jesus Christ Superstar (the bible), Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Cats, Lion King, and Sing!
Cinderella, Snow White, Into the Woods, Little Mermaid
Films (that have been adapted for the stage):
Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Fame, Shrek, Billy Elliott, The Bodyguard, Sister Act, School of Rock, Rocky Horror
Mamma mia, Buddy, Jersey Boys, Thriller, We will rock you, Rock of Ages,
Hairspray, Sound of Music, Oklahoma, Moulin Rouge, Greatest Showman,
You can of course add your own ideas.
