Making Music from Home and School. Part 2: Explanatory Video

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

This is a taster video accompanying an online book with the same title (also on the Scoilnet site). In the book, the Beatles song 'All You Need is Love' is used as a playalong video. Students play along with the video on 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: This taster video highlights musical features in a playalong video. Musical activities are suggested and explored. In the presentation, a second playalong video illustrates the mixed metres within the song. Ideas for further development and curricular links with the Leaving Cert set works are also included.
