Description

This resource is the first in a series of resources which shows a detailed progression towards reading standard notation starting through shape. It is a fun and engaging way to teach children how to read and play through body percussion which leads on to using claves or drumsticks for chair (or table) drumming activities.

This Music Resource Bundle includes: an 11 page Teaching Plan and PPT Resource

As a guide, this resource, delivered as part (20 – 25 mins) of a weekly music lesson and followed up with 2 x 10/ 15mins lessons during the week could take up to 6- 8 weeks to be ready for a performance in a class assembly or concert.

1.Teaching Plan:

The Teaching Guide or Plan has very detailed steps in how to teach ‘keeping a beat’ and playing simple rhythm patterns through the shapes, square and circle which leads on to playing a series of rhythm patterns using Chair Drumming to the well known track ‘The Wellerman’ (Sea Shanty). Also included is a link to a video demo of  the Chair Drumming activity. The activity has also been recorded as a Play Along. The teaching resource details all the steps to help prepare learners for a performance of their Chair Drumming with the Play Along  supporting learners in following the rhythm patterns as each beat is highlighted.

2. The PowerPoint Resource: include all the PPT slides which are referred to in the Teaching Plan along with the ones used for the recorded Play Along. A super resource to have to help support learners in practising the series of rhythm patterns.
