Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ

Description

Aim: Understand a broader range of musical styles. Taken from the BB Junior Pro Pack CR-2-6

Resources

• Paper
• Pens
• Tables
• Numbered large paper from 1-10 (could extend this according to group size)
• Small slips of numbered paper 1-10 in a hat or box

Instructions

Activity1 - Clapping

Aim: To compose a short piece of clapping music for performance to the rest of the group/or leaders.

Instructions:
• Split your group into smaller groups of 2 to 4 children.
• Then ask each group to make a 30 second routine by clapping. An example could be one child claps slowly with a regular pulse whilst the other claps twice between each clap.
• After giving the children live minutes to complete this ask one or two groups to perform to the rest.
• Then put two groups together and give them 5 minutes to combine their routine or come up with something new.

Tips/Advice:
Ensure there is sufficient time to practise. They could try a well known theme like "Match of the day"

Activity 2 - The Graphical Score

Aim: To understand and compose a graphical score.

Preparation:
Check out some graphical score videos on the Internet.

Instructions:
• A graphical score is a score which instead of using ordinary notes uses pictures or symbols to determine which sounds should be used.
• Any sound that can be made can be used all the children have to do is design a score and put sounds to it. A typical one is pictured, this just uses shapes, words and lines if an item is above the line then it is a high sound if it its below then it is a low sound if it crosses the line it goes from low to high.
• After looking at the example the children should then spend around ten minutes writing and practising their own graphical score, for performance at the end of the session.

Tips/Advice:
Any sounds work for this so the more inventive they are the better.

Activity 3 - Musical Number

Aim: To enjoy music and have fun.

Instructions:
• Place the large numbered pieces of paper around the room.
• Put the numbered slips of paper in a hat.
• Get the children to dance around the circle to the music.
• When the music stops, ask the children to stand by the closest numbered paper on the floor.
• Get a leader to pull a slip of paper from the hat
• Call out the number and the children on that number leave the game.
• Continue until one only child is left and they are the winner.
• You could record some of the music created by the children in an earlier activity and use this.
