‘Shake it Off’ – Breaking down the melody

In year 6 with have continued breaking down Taylor Swift’s, ‘Shake it Off.’ First we mastered the rhythm of the chorus.

Last week, we broke the chorus down into its melody (or the order of the musical notes). We performed the melody as a group using pitched instruments and using our voices and the corresponding solfege (musical note syllables).

Check out a sample of our work, can you recognise the melody?
