The National Curriculum requires that all pupils should be able to “play tuned and untuned instruments with control and rhythmic accuracy”. This interactive multi-media pack offers fresh and exciting ways into whole class music making - for both National Curriculum music and Wider Opportunities. Developed especially for 7-11 year olds, Percussion Players contains over 30 games, activities and tunes to play using classroom percussion. Each pack includes CD demonstrations and backing tracks to play along with, as well as brand new INTERACTIVE versions of activities and photocopiable printouts for everyone to play from. The book contains activities focusing on various aspects of music including songs with chord accompaniments and composing. There are lots of ideas for learning songs and tunes that can be performed to an audience as part of a whole school assembly, or even a school concert using simplified charts as well as melody lines and chords, making it suitable for use by specialists and non-specialists alike. Use Percussion Players as a dip-in resource, or an essential building block of your scheme of work.
