First free video idea posted

I’ve just uploaded the first video in what I hope to be a long running project, providing ideas for music activities.

They’re aimed at primary school teachers, but may also work outside of schools with a range of age groups.

I do have another suggestion for making the rhythmic haka (in the video) more difficult.  There is a section in the video where I play two rhythms at the same time, to demonstrate how they should sound together.  The idea in the video though is that there should be two groups in the performance, one group playing one rhythm and the other group playing the second rhythm.  If you are working with a group where you think they could be pushed a bit further, then each person could be given a bottle and a stick to play both rhythms at the same time!  I play the bottle against my shoulder in the video, so that it’s in shot on the video, but if you are asking your group members to play both rhythms at the same time, they could tap their bottle against the stick.
