Blue banner with white text: TEN PIECES

Once again, the BBC have asked us to create accessible resources for their Ten Pieces initiative.

The BBC are launching their third list of ten pieces, all chosen with the aim of opening up the world of classical music to a new generation. BBC Ten Pieces invites students to develop their own creative responses using a variety of art forms. Figurenotes resources echo this aim, with everything from composition worksheets, to poetry inspiration, and parts in Figurenotes notation. Some tunes are more complex, which we have included for the more advanced Figurenotes musicians, with plenty for beginners too. Remember that you can tailor the parts using the Figurenotes software, making them simpler or converting the parts to stage 2 or 3 for students progressing to conventional notation.  You will find editable resources within the Figurenotes Resource Base. PDFs are available for many of the pieces from the BBC Ten Pieces website.

Want even more resources? Join the Figurenotes Resource Base for access to more from BBC Ten Pieces and many other Figurenotes resources, which are easy to tailor to your pupils’ needs.

See Adam Featherstone’s blog from his experience of having BBC Philharmonic musicians visiting his school as part of a BBC Ten Pieces project.

Based in Scotland? Why not get Drake Music Scotland to do a project using BBC Ten Pieces in your school? You can see their fantastic work at www.drakemusicscotland.org

You can find everything you need by visiting our dedicated Figurenotes BBC Ten Pieces webpage.

Resources will be available via the BBC Ten Pieces website very soon, but you can get access to new resources via the Resource Base straight away.
