Spring 1


Year 1 - Synesthesia & Graphic Scores
Year 1 are looking at Synesthesia & Graphic Scores as a way to start thinking about notating music.  We will be looking at various ways to link visual and musical ideas in lessons - why not have a look at this website that looks at a piece music by Schoenberg, and the art by Kandinsky that inspired it to continue your learning at home;
Year 4 - Pachelbel's Canon
Year 4 are looking at a piece of Baroque Music by Johann Pachelbel.  In lessons we will be looking at various interpretations of the piece, how its influenced music, and structure... as well as learning to play it!  Here are the notes we use in lessons so you can practice at home.
Year 6 - Computer Game Music
Year 6 are looking at Computer Game Music.  We will be looking at various techniques that musicians use when composing for Computer Games, before composing our own elements and playing these along in real time with a game.  To starting thinking about Computer Game music we looked at an iconic theme - the music we used is here (for Guitar & Piano).
