Week 6 Music

In music this week we focused on singing and moving while performing. At the beginning we worked on different vocal techniques, which could also be used in the classroom such as having a Relaxed jaw, open throat and larynx position (vocaltechniques, 2010). We were spilt up into group and were asked to create and perform a rap song. In my group we took rounds and changed up the rapping parts for a more layered effect.

Below is a video that was used in another subject. However, I feel that it could be a great resource to scaffold a rapping activity in the classroom for early stage 1 and stage 1.

I also feel that the rap/poetry video below would be a powerful stimulus for stage 3.

We also sang and performed ‘We got the music’ as a whole class and learnt different ways of grouping singers. Such as: Split up boys and girls, high and low singers and how the arrange them for performing.
