What an ABC Creative Music Programme Offers You…

The Yr2/P3 programme contains 3 intro journeys (which revise Year1/P2 material) and 7 journeys of new material, with 45 lesson plans.

A creative music programme brings a warm spontaneous atmosphere to your classroom, with fun but richly meaningful social interaction in all your music sessions.

Creativity is supported by a balance of choice and structure, embedded into the activity design. This helps teachers and guides children to produce clear musical outcomes that engage and excite, while leaving them with genuine creative decisions to make, with the resulting feeling of ownership and achievement.

What Skills & Concepts Will Children Learn- Brief Summary

The programme develops:

active listening skills, visual attention, gross and fine motor skills, language and social skills- and develops a sense of rhythm and pitch, as well as instrumental and singing skills.

The use of symbols and numbers develops literacy and mathematical skills and concepts.

Introduces the development of a finer sense of pitch and enables children to respond to a simple rhythm notation system using shapes. Shape notation is easy for non-specialist teachers and children to understand, and easily evolves into coventional rhythm notation. Through this, the more complex musical concepts of : one, two or ‘no’ sounds per beat are established. Pitch concepts – higher/lower/the same – and repetition are introduced and chidren begin to compose and perform with extra confidence. Start to recognise instrument types and explore materials using plastic. A fuller description of the programme will be posted shortly.
