Becta Example use:
A Year 6 teacher downloaded the vanBasco player and watched the viewlet about how to work it. She also downloaded the karaoke file of "Stars, HIde Your Fires" and practised varying the pitch, tempo and combination of musical strands on playback.
With her class, she used a data projector, so that pupils could read the synchronised words as they sang. She rehearsed them with various combinations of track mutes and at a slower tempo to help make their singing more secure, especially in sections with two vocal parts.
