Year 11 Music Group Rock and Roll!

This is a video of ‘work in progress’ based on a fun, practical 30 minute session to recreate ‘Rock and Roll’ for a learning strand within the Popular Music in 20th and 21st Centuries.  None of the  instrumentalists had sheet music and were required to learn their parts, based on 12 bar blues, by ear. 
Working in this style enables students  to develop their improvisation and ensemble skills as well as providing a context for the music within the given unit. 
Blues and Jazz next…
