In the Gap! is designed to make improvisation possible for all teachers and all students. The activities are clear and structured and support is given in the guidance notes. Primary Music Specialist, Finn Ros says:
“I have to admit, I was pretty nervous about the idea of getting 30 lively 9-10 year olds to improvise, but they absolutely loved it! I found the planning clear and helpful…The song was immediately popular and the performance track got them dancing; always a good sign…We were able to have an in-depth conversation about improvising”
Finn used Vamenos Amigos with her year 5 ukulele class. Read the fantastic new full review of In the Gap! at http://musicstage.co/article/1158/review-in-the-gap.
