Key Quest!! 3 weeks of awesome tunes.

Artists include: Jessie J, Eminem, DNCE, Adele, Hozier, UB40/Elvis, Crazy Frog, Simpsons, Somewhere over the Rainbow (sounds AWESOME when all are keyboards on the string sound!!) and Harry Potter. The following are covered: moderato, staccato, leggier, legato, syncopation, reggae, off-beat, broken chord, sequence, accompaniment etc. I laminate the sheets and it usually lasts for 3 to 4 lessons allowing for individual work but all tunes work well as ensemble pieces. The sheet encourages using other sounds to introduce and build on texture etc.It has worked brilliantly with year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 - obviously getting more picky the higher up you go.
