Before the lesson
- To understand the concept of tempo
Pupils should be taught to:
- Play tuned (and untuned) instruments musically
- Listen with concentration and understanding to a range of high quality (live) and recorded music
- Experiment with, create, select and combine sounds using the interrelated dimensions of music (pitch and tempo)
Pupils needing extra support: You can clap along, gradually increasing the speed of your clap for them to match their music to.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be grouped together, and challenged to slow down gradually (rallentando) after they have got up to their top speed.
