Hello again! Issue 5 of The Music Jungle magazine has arrived. This week, there are articles on how to hand out musical instruments to a class (and what can happen when it goes wrong!), using silence as an effective teaching method, and ideas for the singing and clapping game “Hi Low Chckalow”
I used last week’s aliens to teach a year 5 clarinet class how to read and play E and D; not one child uttered the words that I hate to hear; “Miss, I don’t get it”. They all managed to deal with incoming semibreves and minims in something that approximated to unison – result!
Next week’s issue will be out on Saturday 24th September.
