After using resources from TES for few years I thought it was time to start giving back. I have developed my own way of writing lead sheets for songs for student bands. I think these resources are very useful and this is my way of giving back to the international teaching community.

We picked the most famous songs and created easier scores for a school band with chords and structures. We had a band of mixed students from Year 4 to Year 9 and they could learn these songs in a couple of months. Perhaps later I can post a video of the show - we will have the first show today:)

Rhythm quiz for KS 3 Music

Rhythm quiz for KS 3 Music

(1)
This quiz can work as revision in a fun way. A music game as a starter or as a break in a longer activity. Each slide shows 3 rhythms, the teacher claps or plays one of them and the students should figure out which one it was. I have also attached a form which students can easily fill in. When you go through the answers students can swap papers and correct each others. Please leave feedback!
