Music (Musician of the Week)
Every week we are going to get better acquainted with some incredible musicians with videos and activities.
This week we are learning about: The Beatles
Have you heard of them before?
They are one of the most influential bands of all time, who were influential in Britain and across the world. The members of the band include John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They popularised a new way of performing their music and ways of recording which have influenced many modern day artists. Their way of creating music, helped set the course for modern electric music. We have a lot to thank them for.
Even if you don't recognise them, I guarantee you will recognise at least one of their songs!
Have a listen to one of their earliest songs: I want to Hold Your Hand, this clip is from their first appearance in the USA and they were incredibly popular straight away!
Have a look at the knowledge organiser below, to find out more about them. Once you have done that, have fun listening to this next song, you may recognise the tune from me singing it in the classroom. I wonder why it keeps appearing in my head. Enjoy, it is one of their most popular songs.
This next song is a song about changing the world to make it a better place, and is an example of a protest song, it's called Revolution:
Here is one of the last performances in public by the Beatles, it is also one of my favourite Beatles songs. They changed a lot in the space of a decade, and what great fashion too.
