Making Music from Home and School. Part 1: Online Book

Added: 28 Feb 2021 Contributor: PDST Resource type: Demonstration / Guide/notes / Audio / Video / Presentation

The song 'All You Need is Love', by The Beatles is the central focus of the first playalong video in this online book. Students are invited to play along with the track, on either their melodic or harmonic instruments. The music score is colour-coded accordingly. This resource was first shown at the PDST Music Spring series in 2021.

How it maps to the curriculum


Strand: Aural Skills

Suggestions for use: After the first playalong video, musical features are explored with further activities. A second playalong video illustrates the concept of mixed metres within the song. Ideas for further development and curricular links with the set works are also included. Please check out the 'taster video' on the Scoilnet site, too, to see / hear it in action, with a voice-over by the author.
