Before the lesson
- To build and improve a composition
Pupils should be taught to:
- Play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression
- Listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory
- Use and understand staff and other musical notations
Pupils needing extra support: You may need an adult to support their timekeeping so they are playing alongside the rest of the group. If the pupils struggle, you can allow them to start the piece perhaps so they can focus on only their part.
Pupils working at greater depth: Need to include dynamics (volume) and a definitive texture (many layers at any one time).
