Lesson Content

Othello’s - 


A message from Erin … 

Hi Everyone! 

My name is Erin and I’m the principal of the Haywards Heath Academy and I teach singing at Burgess Hill Academy. 

This week marks the beginning of our February Ariel digital academy and we will be working on our showcase finale!! 

Nicci has recorded a video explaining the piece as a whole and the underlying themes, please make sure you watch that before you start this week’s lesson. 


For this week, you need to learn - 

  • Tune section for ‘Yesterday’ 

  • Tune for ‘Blackbird'

  • Go over the tune for ‘Here Comes the Sun’ (some of you may have learnt this last summer) 

There’s lots to get your teeth stuck into so looking forward to seeing your uploads! Remember they go to using the WeTransfer link below. 

Week 2

A message from Nicci … 


Today we are going to be working on the drama side of the closing of our showcase. I have taken inspiration from the strength of nature and how this  feeds back into our human spirit. 

Please take time to read and reflect on the poem and I am looking for how you use pause and pace within the text. I would also like to hear your music choices to enhance the mood and atmosphere of the piece. Excited to see your uploads so please get your Ariel uniforms and send your videos in to using the WeTransfer link below. 

Week 3

00:00 / 01:22

A message from Matt … 


Hello Othellos! We are continuing with our finale this week and looking at the last track in our medley. This is 'Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ and we are learning the dance today! We are looking for lots of energy, big smiles and for you to ‘rock out!’ 

We can’t wait to see your uploads so please send them over to using the WeTransfer link below. 

Week 4

Get Back- full
00:00 / 02:00

We have 2 tasks for you this week! 


1.) Get Back dance 

Tiffany has choreographed a short section of ‘Get Back’ for you to learn. 

In this piece, we are looking to see a connection to the lyrics, expressed through your movement and facial expression. 

Can’t wait to see your work so please send your video over to using the WeTransfer link below. 


2.) Beth has set a creative task for you … 

As Nicci has created our finale using songs that she has an emotional connection to, we thought it might be nice to invite YOU to choose a song or piece of music that means something special to you. 

Now you can really do anything with this lesson - you can sing your chosen song, or you could perform the lyrics as a monologue or you could create your own dance. We want to see you being as creative as possible and see you enjoying the positive power of music and drama. 

Can’t wait to see your work so please send your video over to using the WeTransfer link below.
