Module 1: Musical Math-e-magic
Access the resources for Module 1 of The Brassketeers.
Turn your pupils into musical math-e-magicians!
This fun, interdisciplinary project introduces children to the joy of brass instruments and the rich sound world they create, while also supporting delivery of the Early and First Level numeracy curriculum.
On this page, you'll find a short introductory film, Meet the Brassketeers, which introduces the project to your pupils, as well as all the resources you'll need to bring it all to life.
The Brassketeers is made up of two elements:
Teaching resources include lesson plans, slide shows, worksheets and games, exploring the relationship between music and maths, as wells as introducing pupils to the basics of music theory and musical notation.
Resources offer a variety of challenges for learners at different stages and are written flexibly – one or both can be used, with lessons sequenced as appropriate for pupils and curriculum priorities.
The Brassketeers is free for schools to use.
