- To be able to play the 12-bar Blues
Pupils should be taught to:
- Play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression
- Use and understand staff and other musical notations
Before the lesson
Pupils needing extra support: Can play just the first note for each chord (print off and hand out Activity: 12-bar Blues chord sequence)
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be encouraged to play 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.
