- To use vocal improvisation and known melodies against a backing track
Pupils should be taught to:
- Improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the interrelated dimensions of music
- Listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory
- Play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression
Before the lesson
Pupils needing extra support: Pupils can work with the teacher or a Teaching Assistant and concentrate on Task 1 – singing songs they can remember from the Presentation: Four-chord progressions.
Pupils working at greater depth: These pupils can combine two or more songs that they know by singing them over the backing track at the same time, and/or combining a known The main/most distinguishable part of a song or piece of music, otherwise called a ‘tune’…. with an improvisation. Pupils who have instrumental lessons could use their instruments to play a melody or improvise over the backing track.
