Singing lesson These Days by Rudimental

Singing lesson These Days by Rudimental

(0)
Hi, I wrote this lesson for an interview. The purpose being to enthuse students in singing and to perform ‘These Days’ by Rudimental. It contains a lesson plan, a WAGOLL (What a good one looks like) video, a backing track and the presentation. The lesson takes into context many key words that could be learnt whilst also learning to sing a piece of music. You could print out some of the slides for students to read the lyrics and also to check their pitching on an instrument. The interview was a 25 minute lesson, but it could be stretched out to ensure students perform with fluency. Please leave a review if you purchase. Your feedback is very important to me!

Treble Clef and Bass Clef Whiteboard Practice

(0)
Treble clef and bass clef practice. I’ve had students write the note name quickly on their whiteboard and hold it up, the quickest to get it right gets points, merits, praise etc. You could also countdown from three and get all students to hold it up at the same time, to stop cheating! Could be used with Y7 all the way to 11 depending on abilities.
