MusiCan is a fantastic suite of animated learning software products that were launched on Teachable. Interactive music teaching resources cover basic concepts from pitch and pulse to dynamics and rests through singing games, tapping rhythms, creating sounds and other engaging activities.
Targeted at pre-school and KS1 Level, MusiCan offers a comprehensive curriculum with visually appealing lessons. Children are taken on a fun musical journey through various themes in which musical knowledge and skills are developed. They are encouraged to listen with attention to sounds found in the environment and find new ways of using sound in composing.
In another animated lesson learn your do, re, me, fa and sol with coloured birds that represent the notes in a musical scale.
Created by an award-winning entrepreneur John Hesnan of Inspired Solutions, MusiCan uses animation, visual cues, sound effects, repetition, song, roleplay and actions to communicate learning points
The lesson plans have been specifically designed to cater for non-specialist and specialist early years practitioners and are suitable for teaching small and large groups of learners.
All resources are also great for SEN, ESL/ELL students and each module’s lesson plan includes further guidance to facilitate creative development.
