As a guide, this resource, delivered as part (20-25 mins)of a weekly music lesson, 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 Guide

This Teaching Plan/ Guide has very detailed steps in how to teach ‘keeping a beat’ and playing simple rhythm patterns through reading the rhythm names of a crotchet (‘ta’) and quavers (‘te te’) which leads on to playing a series of rhythm patterns through Chair Drumming (or table drumming) to the well known track ‘The Wellerman’ (Sea Shanty). Also included is a link to video demonstrations of  2 Chair Drumming activities. The first demo shows the series of rhythm patterns all being tapped on the back of a chair. The second demo activity shows the next step, where the sticks are tapped on the back of a chair on ‘ta’ and the sticks are tapped together on ‘te te’. 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 Guide 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.
