Engaging with Music Theory

Engaging with Music Theory

Last Updated: 09 Oct, 2019

 

This half term I'm teaching Music Theory. In this perticular lesson the children were learning to play Twinkle, Twinkle by reading notes from a stave. During the task I saw a boy who wasn't getting as involved as the rest of the class, but from previous lessons I knew that he's clearly musical. During a 1:1 disucssion I asked him if he likes to create his own music and he replied yes, he makes beats. When I asked if he could beatbox too, he laughed and said of course Miss. So I invited him up to the front of the class to create the rhythmic backing track to one of the other students performing Twinkle, Twinkle on the keyboard. It was so fun, he was really involved and engaged and the whole class were enjoying the performance. Later in the lesson when the children moved on to another song he sat at the keyboards participating with the rest of the group, as well as doing some quiet beatboxing along to his practising. 

I really enjoyed finding a way to get his attention and allow him to contribute to the lesson. I look forward to seeing him grow throughout the lessons.
