About This Resource
Our Just Play Playalongs are designed as an add-on to existing Just Play resources for teachers and schools to make more classroom music together.
PlayAlong+ is a great opportunity for students to develop their musical learning further, building on the skills they have developed through ‘Just Play’. Excellent for bridging the gap between Just Play, where the focus is primarily harmonic, and Informal Learning, where students can begin to incorporate more melodic features by ear.
Playalong+ can be the starting point for deeper exploration with opportunities for aural learning and examination of individual parts.
