Ukulele & Guitar

Leics Explore Music Technology

Led by Tim Clay, Leics Explore Music Technology is a weekly 6-lesson resource for KS1 and KS2 students for use at school or at home - based on the LSMS Scheme of Work Unit 5 theme of Music Technology.

Over the 6 sessions pupils will learn how to use a range of fun, interactive and free web based applications. Each of these pieces of software will encourage musical learning and exploration and the sessions themselves will build upon previous knowledge as well as introducing pupils to musical structures.

PDF's to accompany each video are available using links posted in the descriptions on Youtube.


Leics Explore Pitch

Developed by our Team Leader Becky Bell, Leics Explore Pitch is a weekly 6-lesson resource aimed at KS1 and KS2 students for use at school or at home and is based on the LSMS Scheme of Work Unit 4 theme of Pitch.

Learning about pitch, dynamics, tempo and timbre, KS1 viewers can explore voice and found sounds to compose music and create sound effects for characters in a story. KS2 viewers can compose ostinato patterns, drones and melodies, to create layers of sound for a composition, using junk 'instruments' and found sounds. No prior knowledge of music or pitch is required so these resources can be used by everyone!

Links for accompanying PDF's for each video are in the relevant youtube video description.
