Sheep Beats iPad Lesson

Sheep Beats is a free, browser based application which allows pupils to quickly begin notating drum patterns. Using a repeating one bar loop, pupils can enter notes into the grid and watch and hear the sheep animations play back what has been entered. There are some pre-set patterns which exemplify drum rhythms associated with a few genres and there is also the capability to enter in melodic bass lines and chords.

Examples of Sheep Beats planning from Teachers

Music Co-ordinator and Nursery SENCO at Beacon Academy, Karen Jones, has produced a 6 lesson unit of work for year 5, however it could be adapted and taught to year 4 and 6 respectively. The unit uses the free online resource, Sheep Beats, as the main stimulus for exploring various aspects of musical learning such as reading and writing graphic and standard notation; listening to and appraising music from a range of genres and performing created pieces, using a blend of organic and computer music. Karen has kindly shared this planning with us and welcomes teachers to use it to help support their planning.
