This is our first week of music after almost a year! Therefore, our tutorial today felt like a refresher course. We went through a lot of the basics that was covered during first year. This included Performance and music theory. We also went had a recap on all of the five concepts within music.
- Tone colour
- Dynamics (Gibson, R. el at, p.111-112 2011)
We then touched on all of the different notes such as the ones found below
as well as the major and minor notes found in music. During our tutorial we also created percussion scores by playing different sections of music depending on soprano, alto, tenor and base.
This helped us to read simple rhythms and melodies using chords to make simple accompaniments. At the end of our tutorial Nancy Cincotta showed the class some useful resources, which can be used in the classroom. This included: Jelly beans
Jellybean is a music material site that offers musical resources, which are easy to use in the classroom.
