Whilst schools are currently closed, Sing Up, a resource that Kingfield regularly use in assemblies and in classes, are offering access to some of their resources for free from home.

The lyrics are provided, along with backing tracks to sing along to. Why not have a family karaoke session!

 

Out of the Ark Music is another resource we use a lot at school who are also offering elements for free.

The BBC have a series of Music sessions known as 'Ten Pieces'. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/ten-pieces/ten-pieces-at-home/zjy3382

 They are providing weekly activities for parents to share with their children. Each includes a Ten Pieces film to watch and enjoy and a linked creative activity that can be completed by children at home without any special materials or preparation. A perfect, simple and easy way to keep listening, enjoying and creating music at this time.

The first piece of music they are looking at is The Little Train of the Caipira; a piece of music written by Heitor Villa Lobos.

Week two's piece is Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians - Linked with body percussion.

Week three uses Elgar’s Enigma Variations and encourages thinking about memories.

 

Young Voices are also providing an 'at home' section of their website -

They're uploading lots of fun and interactive tutorials, demonstrations and performances all suitable for children to enjoy whilst staying safe at home. They've even had some beat-boxing workshops on there!
