Music Video Lesson - The Corrs 'At Your Side'

Average: 3.9 (17 votes)

This was the first song I ever learnt to play on the guitar! Of course that was more than a few years ago and I doubt I can play it now, but I still remember it fondly! Do any of you play instruments? If so, what was the first song you learnt to play? I didn't play guitar for very long, but I played piano for years and I really miss it. If anyone has a piano to give away then let me know!

Listen to the song and complete the gaps with the missing words, then look around for a free piano.

Music Video Lesson - All Saints 'Pure Shores'

Average: 3.3 (15 votes)

This song is about finding a place where you can totally relax. For the singer, this place is the beach. I'm also from the seaside and really love to spend time by the sea, especially when I can eat fish and chips there! Listen to this song and try and complete the gaps with the correct lyrics.

You do not need to listen to the whole song.

Music Video Lesson - KT Tunstall 'Suddenly I See'

Average: 4.2 (19 votes)

This song, by KT Tunstall is the definition of 'summery music'!

It makes me feel like dancing in the park in the sunshine.

It would really help me if you could tell me which songs you like to listen to when the sun is shining. Or do you have a favourite artist?

Complete this gap fill exercise and then let me know!

Music Video Lesson - The Script

Average: 3.7 (19 votes)

This is a very romantic song about a man who will wait forever for the love of his life to return to him. Although I think if someone did that for me I’d be quite cross and tell them to go inside and have a shower...

What do you think? Is this man romantic or silly?

Listen to the song and complete the gaps with the correct vocabulary.

Music Video Lesson - Maroon 5 'She Will Be Loved'

Average: 4 (21 votes)

I can't believe this song is nearly ten years old! It's another song that tells a story, which as you know is my favourite type.

Read through the lyrics and try to guess which word goes in each gap. Then listen and see if you were right.

Music Video Lesson - Michael Buble "Feeling Good"

Average: 4.1 (11 votes)

Here is another Michael Buble song for you to enjoy and learn from. In this lesson, I have removed vocabulary that is related to animals or the natural world.

I'm sure you will have come across many of these words before, but I hope some will be new.

What is the creature in the picture?

Good luck!
