- To be able to improvise with notes from the Blues scale
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
Before the lesson
Pupils needing extra support: Add coloured sticky dots to the notes that need to be played. Give them the short sections of pre-prepared improvisation using Activity: Blues improvisation.
Pupils working at greater depth: Encourage them to have a go at improvising without any prompts. Get them to try and improvise for the duration of the 12 – bar Blues backing track.
