Before the lesson
- To play African inspired rhythms using percussion instruments
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
- Use and understand staff and other musical notations
- Appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians
Pupils needing extra support: Give them the simpler rhythms to do from the Presentation: Drumming away to Africa, such as, ‘I am a tourist in Uganda’.
Pupils working at greater depth: These children need the more complex rhythms that include rests; for example, the ‘chicken in a vest’ A regular repeated pattern of sound.
