This could be done with a tape recorder. Record pupils’ own sound quizzes about different kinds of music and musical vocabulary. This could be done as an aural quiz or as part of a multimedia presentation. Use an electronic keyboard (or several if they are available) to provide the basic notes or a drone for other children to accompany with percussion instruments. There are several virtual keyboards online, which could make this easier to demonstrate. A good example can be found on www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/resources_ftp/client_ftp/ks2/music/piano/organ.htm, which also provides a variety of instrument sounds in order to vary the timbre. Use digital music software to create motifs for pupils’ dance, as well as music to accompany their paintings and the work of other artists. Explore musical rhythms from other cultures on African Polyrhythms (www.ancient-future. com/africa.html). After a performance at a local concert or theatre, send a collective e-mail or word-processed letter to the artist explaining what the pupils most enjoyed about the performance. Create visual presentations and animations to go with a piece of music they enjoy.
