P2 - D2

Repeat short, easy rhythmic and melodic phrases by playing back from memory

Play a simple piece and ask learners to recall the melody by humming or singing it. At this stage, melodies can include simple leaps, e.g. the notes of a tonic triad, but aim to keep the overall range within an octave.

Engage learners in more extended ‘copycat’ exercises, i.e. more notes, longer phrases, greater expressive detail.
