Repeat moderately short musical phrases (melodic and rhythmic) from memory
Ask learners to repeat moderately short phrases, of appropriate difficulty, performed by the teacher or other learners. Include music with a variety of time signatures, including compound time, and tunes with a wider range.
Ask learners to clap/tap the pulse while the phrases are being played and possibly identify some musical features.
Play scales in canon, e.g. the teacher or a learner starts, other learners begin two notes later – playing in consecutive thirds.
Extend a call-and-response sequence, repeating phrases or improvising new ones, always aiming for a musical performance.
