Teaching Music As A Subject

Post by Beccababe_025 on Mon Apr 21, 2008 4:26 am

hey u guys. as part of my job i have to teach drama and music. drama is pretty easy as we can just muck around and play games.

Music- i'm struggling a little bit. U'd think after being heavily involved with music after 12 yrs u'd have a bizillion ideas. but i'm at a complete blank! I've been told that i should plan lessons that are fun and interesting for kids who aren't neccessarily muiscians or know much about music. also wanting me to teach in specific rock n roll and the brittish invasion. (brittish invasion was pretty much when uk bands topped charts- like beatles, david bowie etc.) which i dont find extremely fascinating.

So, i'm going to have diff groups of kids ranging from 9 to 17 and i have to teach them music in a fun way. Seems easy enough lol....but its not

So far i can only think of rhythm games and maybe playing some music and getting them to create stories to go along with it. Making up a rap or song about camp in groups....group sing-a-longs....thats about all i got.

any ideas? what would u like to learn as a non-musician or musician with non-musicians lol

Any help watsoever with this would be greatly appreciated!!!

thanks! bec x

clapping games is good- that'll be good for the 9-12 yr olds but its the older teens i'm worried about lol. i've only ever been surrounded by other musicians so it makes it hard when u have kids that dont know a lot about music.

I'm thinking for the older kids...do stuff with the guitar Smile Like guitar sing-a-longs etc.

Or get them doing choir stuff...if they are full into music! Most musicians love to do choir stuff!! That's what I found in High School anyways!!

Do like the whole...oh what do you call them when someone starts singing, then a bar later another person joins in from the beginning and then after another bar another person joins in....do that!!

hahaha the black socks neva get dirty cannon is always fun ahha. u guys know it?


ok been thinking kristina how u said get them to write songs but they wouldnt understand cos they're not musicians? well seeing im the 'teacher' i guess i could teach them a simple chord prog on piano/guitar then like u said- teach basic chords and have jams/sing-a-longs

maybe i should just whip out hairspray and force them to watch it each session lol.
