- To play the first line of the 12-bar Blues
Pupils should be taught to:
- Use and understand staff and other musical notations
- Understand and explore how music is created, produced and communicated, including through the inter-related dimensions: pitch, duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, structure and appropriate musical notations
Before the lesson
Pupils needing extra support: Can play just one note in the chord – in this instance the note C.
Pupils working at greater depth: Can have a go at playing Quavers are one-eighth of a full note and half the length of a crochet…. for the chords – so in the space of one bar they will play eight chords instead of four (see the Teacher video: Playing a chord).
