Content objective:
This resource should enable a child to:

  • select from a wide variety of sound sources (voice, body percussion, untuned and tuned percussion, melodic instruments and technology) for a range of musical purposes

Suggestions for use: Use lesson plan as described. Focus particularly on texture, pulse and tempo of the music. Record performances using ICT so that children can watch their performances back.
