Make A Tune

Children love to tell stories and they love to make tunes. Adults say composing is difficult, but for children it is second nature. When they make a tune using notes they are familiar with they can take ownership of those notes and their own learning. Even children who struggle to remember will love this activity in my experience.

This is a page of tunes children have made up in group lessons. They were given a rhythm to clap, then they used the notes they had learned to make a tune. Each child contributed a bar and carried on from the last. All I have done is notate and tidy up for them - oh yes - and produce an accompaniment so they can play along. Please respect that some of these children are only in Key Stage One, but the copyright belongs to them and me as arranger!
