Introduction to Jazz in Year Five

Year Five have begun a new unit of work learning about jazz music. We have started with a song called ‘Three Note Bossa’ which uses the three notes: G, A and B. The children appraised the song, giving thoughtful opinions about how the song made them feel, before learning to play it accurately. At first it was tricky to get the notes in the right order and to maintain the correct tempo, however, by the end of the lesson everyone had mastered two sections of the song. Next lesson we will learn the third section and begin to add in our own improvisations.
