This activity will be based on group work, performing and improvising. A song called is Naive- The Kooks reinterpreted Lilly Allen- Naive

part 1

form groups of  3 or 4 to create a small ensemble. In each group there should be at lest 1 singer and 1 guitarist.

The aim is to reinterpret the song into another sub genre of popular music such as the song naive which originally is rock then reinterpreted into pop music by Lilly Allen.

In the re-interpretation of the song each member of the group must incorporate some improvisation for 1 minute of the song, this can be done by scatting in vocals changing the lyrics, guitars a short riff staying in key, and drummers a short solo.

Here are two examples of the songs.
