I hope you managed to master the finger fitness from last week.
Here's a new one. It starts off easy, but then it gets harder. Good Luck!
Remember, 'If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again.'
Last week you made up sentences to create rhythms for your fanfare.
This week we are going to PLAY YOUR FANFARE
If you have a xylophone or keyboard at home you can use those.
HOW TO HAVE A XYLOPHONE of KEYBOARD AT HOME IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE!
Download the Free App - EasyXylo on ipads or iphones
OTHERWISE - you can click this link, which will take you to a virtual piano.
If you have an android phone or tablet you can look up virtual xylophone and see what FREE apps are available.
MAKE YOUR OWN. You will need 3 bottles/glasses and a teaspoon.
Fill each with different levels of water.
Change the level of the water to match the pitch on the clip. Click here to get the right pitch.
You are going to need the sounds of D G B. Label them, put them in order D G B, and tap on them with a spoon to make the correct sound.
COMPOSE your fanfare.
Using the notes D G B put them in the grid that you created last week with your rhythm sentences, and then play them on your tuned instruments.
Here is an EXAMPLE, of what to do.
You could try playing my composition before you start your own.
You could add some other instruments to build it up.
For example, you might like a drum roll at the beginning, or a crash of cymbals somewhere, or a crescendo of shakers.
Experiment and see what you can make.
RECORD your FANFARE
I would love to hear your fanfare's. Maybe you could make one for the Johanna TV, or just do a sound recording and send it to your Class Rep on WhatsApp.
Let's get fit with Greensleeves.
Easy to play. You just have to sit down and listen to the song and every time you hear a word that starts with a G you have to stand up or sit down if you are already standing.
A new Tudor song to sing!
I hope you enjoy it.
