Don’t forget to get your students to complete the SURVEY if they haven’t already done so!
Realise the capacity of teacher and student voices by exploring the sounds they can make and by vocalising a variety of instrumental parts of a current song known to them. Take as many lessons as you need to complete this session.
Plan collaboratively with other teachers via:

Workshop (a song medley based on I, V, VI, IV chord pattern)
Gradually build up a sung groove of rhythm, bassline and harmony parts, over a loop of the four chords I-V-VI-IV. Song suggestions can be found HERE, double click to add yours!
All students learn to vocalise:
- A simple rhythmic line
- A bassline
- Guitar riffs/harmonies
Vocalising riffs from #mfpilot2013 Training
Break students into groups to create their own versions of songs that they know over the 4-chord pattern groove. Challenge them to come up with as many songs as they can in small groups. Students take it in turns to sing the songs, and to vocalise the groove.
