I am a music specialist and the music I write is original, tested on children and for the less confident teacher. My aim is to provide you with everything you need to fulfil Topic requirements and those of the National Curriculum (without having to prepare anything.) I provide Power Points/videos and give you mp3s and lyrics. Notation is sometimes given. The instrumental parts are dead easy! I direct you to my YouTube channel so you can hear before you decide to buy.

A musical story with implications for RE,song -composing and singing. Videos

This is a story on video or PowerPoint and video about a spider who wanted his own song. He listened to all the other mini beasts singing and desperately wanted his own song . The idea is to "hook" the children into making their own songs. There is a teacher's guide showing what learning objectives might be encountered. After the story, there is a follow up song using all the creature's individual songs from the story. e.g. high/low/fast/slow/voice expression etc. The story can also be used in Assembly/PHSE as an in road to "finding your voice" it would be a good starter for writing too. Included in the resource is a video PPT mp3 teachers notes

"Welcome to Shrek's fairyland" Upbeat song about the characters in the Swamp

(0)
This song with a hip hop beat welcomes you to Shrek’s home in the swamp. Living there are many folk from famous fairy stories. There is an opportunity, if you have a set of chime bars (from C to C’) to play them in descending order. If not, simply move your hands from an upright position to your side or on the floor. The idea is to feel the descent of the pitch from high to low. My children enjoyed adding movement to the song. It makes a good “party piece” for an assembly on fairy stories. Included in the resource 1. PPT lyrics music. 2. Lyrics 3. Backing track mp3 4. vocal track mp3 5. Video of the song Covers singing, playing an instrument, pitch, responding to music,
