Music Skills: Cello Edition
British Army Music brings you a toolkit of four engaging resources, helping to bridge the gap between KS3 Music and the Music GCSE curriculum. The cello resource is introduced by Lance Corporal Adrian Calef, one of the Army’s star cellists and part of the Countess of Wessex’s String Orchestra. He talks about different cello techniques, as well as his composition work.
Each resource focuses on one instrument to develop a wide range of general skills, covering instrument knowledge, music history, as well as composition and listening skills. They have been designed to make lesson planning simple, with the option to be completed as a full-length lesson or individual elements used as lesson starters, extension activities, homework or to aid in revision. The resource consists of an in depth video, class slides, and worksheet with tasks for students to complete as a class or independently.
