Let's Musicise in C, part 1 (LMCi​)​: Classroom Teaching Method for Chime​-​bars, Bells, Boomwhackers, Xylophone, Piano in C​-​major scale - now released on Bandcamp.

Working on the second level of the 4-hole ocarina, the LMDj series for classroom music education, Let's Musicise.

This is a score for Frere Jacques, to be used with the LMDj 4-hole ocarina part.

I started working on updating the advanced part of the ocarina series of Let's Musicise, the LMDj series.

The first two songs finished songs are Mary Had A Little Lamb and Lightly Row- for a 4 hole ocarina (oc).


I figured that I ought to have a score for teachers for let's Musicise, LMGj series.

So, here's a draft of Oh My Darling Clementine, consisting of:

  • the melody
  • lyrics
  • chord names
  • left hand piano
  • guitar/ukulele strum indication
  • additional verses

Let's Musicise, LMGj series is a method for classroom teaching ages 6-9. LMGj stands for Let's Musicise, instruments comfortable in G (recorder etc), Juniors.

Was tweaking the guitar part for Oh Susanna and Incy WincySpider.

For the LMGj stream of the Let's Musicise project, I just finished the recorder parts for The Big Ship Sails and Polly Put The Kettle On.

Working on the Let's Musicise, LMGj project, created piano left hand for Oh Susanna and Bear Over The Mountain.

Just finished the lead sheet for Oh! Susanna, for the the LMGj series of KLet's Musicise.

I created recorder tabs for the Let's Musicise, project, LMGj series, Happy Birthday and Incy Wincy Spider

I just created simple left-hand piano sections for the Let's Musicise, project, LMGj series, Happy Birthday and Incy Wincy Spider

The Let's Musicise LMGj (Junior) series is aimed at classroom teaching for ages 8-10.

12 songs in total.

Guitar, ukulele, piano, recorder and a generic lead sheet per lesson.

Here's a sample of Au Claire De La Lune and London Bridge

The transfer of two lessons on one page for LMGi took less time then expected.

Here's a preview of the LMGi, ukulele series.

LMGi is short for Let's Musicise in G, level 1; it's a method for learning to read music in a classroom.

The lessons are very short, 8 bars each, so I was looking for ways to make two lessons fit into one page, with titles etc.

Looking good so far...

While working on the LMGi classroom method, I initially decided to use both guitar and ukulele tabs at the same, for two songs per page.

But then I stumbled across an earlier version, where I used to put down the chord-diagrams on the same page (as the examples at the top).

Which means that instead of two lessons and two instruments on one page, I will need to have two lessons and one instrument - but it will have chord-diagrams and looks much clearer (examples at the bottom).

I have created a melody for the orthodox hymn Jesus Christ You Gentle Light.

Margaret, the choir master from the St Peter / St Paul Orthodox Church in Clapham will take the music to the Orthodox Music Symposium.
