Game to notation on a stave

In lesson 3, we use 'human notation' as a tool to teach the beginnings of written notation.

Download the lesson plan for lesson 3 and watch the video below.

Lesson 3 learning objectives:

  • To work with a three line, and then five-line stave
  • To understand that ‘note heads’ (blobs) can go on the line of the stave or in the space between the lines
  • To show the tone-set me – ray – doh (m-r-d) on a stave
  • To compose using m-r-d on a stave
