Building on elements of  the music curriculum we would like to offer a new KS1 performance.

Only £150 for the whole of Year 1 and Year 2.

A young girl journeys in search of her piano’s missing middle ‘C’ lost in transit during a house move.

Placing a specially constructed piano at the centre of the classroom, it encourages students to play, understand  and respond to music, enhancing both language and listening skills through a playful and magical story.

Half a day includes a 45 minute performance and accompanying workshop (s) with free follow up resources.

Brought to you by Leeds International Piano Competition, Manic Chord and Bradford Music Education Hub with support from Emerald Foundation.

The initial development and implementation of Skylar’s Missing Note was funded by Leeds Music Education Partnership. This collaboration and support enabled the creative development of the piece and ensured curriculum learning is embedded within the performance and resources.

Book now for 2 March – 18 March 2020 as there is limited availability to 12 schools only!

If you would like to book this unique and impactful project for your pupils, please email two preferred dates between 2 and 18 March as soon as possible.

The Music & Arts Service is not responsible for booking applicants for this project.

Primary Network Summer 2019



Documents and Resources:

When visiting schools to carry out school audits, a number of people have mentioned difficulties in teaching musical notation and standardising how this is taught within school. Below are three PowerPoint files that contain an approach to this based around shapes, suitable for children from Reception upwards to Year 6. Each rhythm is taught through the syllabic pattern of the name of the shape (shape, circle, etc.) and uses colourful images to represent each rhythm (tip: the number of eyes link to the amount of claps).

Display Shape Rhythms – Introductory power point with shape and matching rhythm cards.

Editable Shape Rhythms – Create your own rhythmic resources.

Shape Rhythms – Printable resources to create a notation based display in your music room or area.

Please email if you require further information.
