Re: Nature Sounds: Recording students using Garage band

Hi Bree,
Some fabulous ideas here!
Great material for recording student compositions. I have used Garage band for creating rap sequences with students, recording their rap compositions related to particular themes that they might be working on in other learning areas.

Perhaps you could create new verses for Nature Sounds related to different aspects of the environment and record them in this way.

Keep these great ideas coming in!

Re: Liffey Falls - other music to do with water (literal or figurative)

Hi Bree,
Some great ideas here! Thanks for sharing.
Another idea that's an excellent choral piece:
By the Waters of Babylon: Great to perform in a round!

Musica Viva is about to release a new student resource "I Turn on the Tap" with the partner song performed by the Musica Viva In Schools ensemble The Song Company. This also links to other learning areas, understanding the value of water for life and looking after our environment.

Great to extend the students with this learning!

Re: Makukuhan lesson feedback

Hi Glenys,
Great to hear what you've been preparing with your students. Thanks so much for sharing this.

Kecak is great for exploring part work with the speech rhythms, actions and facial expressions that are so engaging.

It's also interesting to look at the origins of kecak in the Ramayana story.

Great that you've been able to work with the melodic material as well.

Enjoy!

2014 Digital Seminars Housed as Videos in 2015

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to let you all know that the Digital Seminars that were filmed in 2014 are now housed as useful video resources in the suite of teaching videos for each ensemble in musicstaffroom.com

Although many teachers indicated that they were able to access the 2014 Digital Seminars "live", feedback also indicated that it was not always convenient to watch the live event. Many teachers, however, were able to view the recorded Digital Seminar at a later date, revisiting aspects to clarify different teaching points as needed.

We have decided to store the 2014 Digital Seminars on musicstaffroom.com as resources to support teachers with different teaching steps and aspects of the group's performance. Digital Seminars won't therefore be filmed in 2015 but our teaching resources and digital materials are gradually being revised and updated to ensure that they provide current and engaging learning opportunities for your students.

Please contact me at Musica Viva if you would like to offer ideas on how we can provide further support to you in your teaching.

Cheers,
Sue

Bodhran solo

I found this amazing video of a Bodhran solo by Josselin Fournel. This definitely shows your students the sound possibilities on this traditional Irish instrument.

Other versions of Star of the County Down

Have a look at a few other versions of Star of the County Down. Interesting to look at the traditional instrumentation that is common to each.
The Chieftains

Orthodox Celts
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEt2XdN_TbQ...

The Coach House (a mix of From the New Country and Star of the County Down) with different instrumentation. You might like to use some ideas here with playing found objects.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1Dp20CG6rw...

You might like to compare these versions and others with your students.

Cajon research

Consider some research related to the history and playing techniques of the cajon. There are some interesting websites available to support this.

Re: Pastance

Hi Jacki,
Thanks so much for sharing how your students have responded to the Pastance music. Wonderful to hear that they're still enjoying it and using their initiative to use the music for fitness. We love hearing stories like this! It makes you realise what an impact the experience can have on students!

Re: We can work it out

Hi Michelle,
Sounds like so much fun!
Have you tried the rumba dance with your students? I'm sure they would love the chicken, the elephant and the lion. Enjoy!
