Pop Music Sessions
These lessons are purely about the thrill of playing a song with your friends and hearing how individual guitarists, singers, pianists sounds when you put them all together. These sessions are also available as PPA cover too. We provide the instruments for the school to keep throughout the year to help with extra practice time.
How does this differ from Music Lessons?
This is all about gaining confidence, learning a new skill with new innovative music lessons for class groups. The lessons are catered around chord progressions, melody and rhythm instead of traditional and Classical lessons. These chord progressions allow the children to build up motor skills, muscle memory and performance skills which help build a child’s confidence, social skills and learning abilities due to the accelerated learning process. And with the current situation with covid19 it provides an excellent alternative to Brass and Woodwind classes.
All children will receive a BMA Music workbook, this includes learning support materials, backing tracks and notational lead sheets with theory exercises to a grade 1 standard. Who knows, you may have the next band with the X-Factor in your class!
During the last term of School sessions (inclusive of PPA and Wider Opportunities), the students are set a project of writing a school song to record and perform using skills from during the previous term’s work. This includes writing the lyrics, creating the chord structure and recording the song. Our tutors will also provide a report for the school in the preferred school format. This truly is a wonderful, innovative and modern approach to music education in schools.
