Year 8

Creating a Band Image and Identity:
Imagine you are forming a band with some friends. What will your band be called? What sort of genre of music will you play?
Now design a band logo, a poster advertising your next concert/gig and an album cover. Colour in your designs for display and label your logo to explain the significance/symbolism of each part.

Use the link to open up the St John’s Music KS3 Singing playlist on YouTube. Take some time to learn the songs – remember that practice makes perfect! For more challenge see if you can add some vocal harmonies!

Composing: The Four Elements/ Seasons:
Using the online virtual piano (in free-mode) compose a four short pieces (30secs-1 minute each) describing each of the four elements: Air, Fire, Water and Earth; or each of the Four Seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter.
Notate your pieces either by writing down all the notes use, or, for more challenge, by printing off some musical staves and notating using staff notation.
