Music With Mr McNulty

Mr McNulty creates videos as Music Lessons to show to learners, often with teacher to teacher introductions to help you understand what is to be covered. He has great enthusiasm for the range of subjects covered.

He includes Garageband, videos, detailing recording guitar and digital guitar, as well as editing and recording within Garageband. He shows how to  programme and record drums as well as recording an instrument and making music in Garageband.

Mr McNulty has a number of Google Chrome Music Lab related videos, especially using Song Maker and linking with other curricular areas when making music. There is a nice series on using Kandinsky to explore music creation using drawings, focusing on pitch, expression and timbre

Looping and Exploring Rhythm is covered frequently, especially using Super-Looper as a recording app, and making beats, music and learning timing skills.

His Music Theory content covers Reading Notes on the Treble Clef stave with activities, as well as learning first Scales, Identifying Music Notes, and starting to have fun composing simple Music and Rhythms.

Mr McNulty also has a large bank of ukulele and guitar lessons for beginners, including riff of the week to highlight and teach a new motif each time.

Meg’s Music Room

Meg’s Music Room’s channel has a range of videos with different helpful content. Meg’s got a few different types of content, both for teachers and also talking direct to students.

She is great fun – not afraid to introduce comedy and laughter in to her lessons and shares all sorts of things she’s trying out in her own classroom.

She has a good range of Bucket drumming videos – with count ins and play along scores and useful examples to copy. She uses helpful dynamics reminders and some of her own her own backing tracks. Meg has a real range of levels which are clearly marked to choose or work through and I really like the intro pattern practices before the main play alongs.

Meg has a number of Music minute videos stuffing a large number of facts in one minute about composers, styles, and other topics.

There are also some great fun Read-a-louds to play to students, where her classroom persona come to the forefront.

Meg also makes Karaoke style sing-alongs, often in more comfortable keys, that are well put together.

And a bank of recorder lessons with her demonstrating, describing and then leading the play along for learners.

Meg has some fun ‘How to make’ videos, such as this one where she is working out how to create a pterodactyl  for a display which add further character to her channel.

As I said, Meg’s content is great fun – she is enthusiastic and entertaining, and she’s clearly getting more into making content again so I’m really excited to see what she will come up with in the future.
