Description

These can be used as a shorter alternative to the other warm-up tracks, again using call and response rhythms for whole class tuition activities. However, as an extended warm-up and composition activity you could try encouraging pupils to come up with some rhythms of their own to try. These can be played using the corresponding notes for each track. The activity may also be extended further by notating the rhythms you come up with.

Each of the Micro Warm-up tracks are in 4/4 and their structure is:

  • 4 bar introduction
  • 8 bars to play

You can play the B flat version here as an example:

Quick Transposition Reference:
