Teachers TV: KS1/2 Music for Pupils - Three Songs

Overall rating 4 out of 54.5 (6 ratings)

Last updated 20 June 2014, created 17 June 2010, viewed 36,057

Songs with different features and vocal exercises. Two vocal tongue twisters are used for a warm-up exercise and then we learn three songs: Kye Kye Kule - a West African action song, The Frog Song - a simple Japanese song rehearsing pitch, John Kanaka - a sea shanty with call and refrain. More…Each song has a different feature and may be more appropriate to different age groups, they can be used as repertoire for developing Ongoing Skills (Units 1, 8 and 15) or within specific units, e.g. Kaeruno uta ga - Unit 5 Taking Off: Exploring pitch.
