We have started a new music unit learning about Jazz. We have listened to The Three Note Bossa by Ian Gray and we are starting to learn how to play it.
We’ve had a fun start to the new unit of music for this half term. Our unit is Livin’ On A Prayer. We are studying Rock music and how it has developed from the Beatles onwards. We will be analysing performances from different rock bands and learn to sing a variety of Rock songs.
This week we have listened to Livin’ On A Prayer which is a classic rock song from the 80s. Formed in 1983, Bon Jovi is an American rock band from New Jersey named after it’s lead singer Jon Bon Jovi. The band became known for writing several rock anthems and achieved widespread recognition with their third album, Slippery when Wet, released in 1986.
We listened to the music and discussed these questions:
Do you like the song?
What can you hear?
What is the style of the music?
How is the song put together?
Which instruments plays the solo?
Why don’t you have a try at home!
