- To improvise a call and response
Pupils should be taught to:
- Improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the inter-related dimensions of music
- Use and understand staff and other musical notations
Pupils needing extra support: Should play the response part and keep it simple. When they are learning the whole tune, they can just play the first two lines if they are struggling.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should work alone and then play the response as well as the tune. If possible, get them to play the response in a different octave to their original tune.
