Performing a simple melody with the right hand only on a keyboard. Worksheet 1) A great resource that encourages students to play the keyboard and feel a sense of achievement. From experience, the students really like to play 'The Simpsons' and they tend to play this one first. I encourage the st More…udents to play EastEnders first as it is a good introduction to playing a scale of C major - then I let them play The Simpsons as a 'reward' (hee hee) Worksheet 2) A worksheet to support 'understanding graphic scores' a well known tune based on the Rugrats. The circles = short notes / The lines = longer notes. For extra work students can add the third meaning that they will start with the notes C and E - this works throughout the song. Students that are competent in using their left hand can add a bass line consisting of C, F and G. Worksheet 3) The Crazy Frog and The Simpsons worksheet using non-standard notation. * IF YOU DOWNLOAD ANY OF THESE RESOURCES PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK*

Wonderful way to introduce music notation and pitch without the confusion of the stave but still showing highs and lows.
