We will review the quarter, barred eighth note and the quarter rest and then we will review the  three  triplet feel patterns found in compound time (6/8 patterns)  We will add sixteenth note patterns to our rhythms this year. We will learn to read, perform and play the patterns, then  how to identify the patterns.   This class is designed for students who are older or have been through all of my music classes: but those inexperienced should be able to pick up the concepts taught in this class.     {Approx 11 and older are involved in these classes.}    We will hear it, read it, play it and Identify it.  We will review reading notes in treble clef and bass clef this year and if we have time add Tenor clef to the mix.  We will also review  intervals of steps, skips, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th,  6th and octave.  Students will be required by the end of the class to find the letter names on each of the staves and identify them in Bass, Treble, and Tenor clef.  Then we start with solfege Do, re, me, so and La.  We will learn how to write do, re, me, so, la  and talk about the difference between a step and a skip.  They will  understand the sounds of steps and skips.  We will write it on the staff, play it , hear it, sing it and walk it on the staff.  At the end we will take the rhythms from the beginning of the year quarter, barred eighth note, quarter rest ,  the three triplet patterns,  and sixteenth note patterns mix them with the solfege where we will read the rhythm, read the solfege, play it, jump it sing it and write it…no matter where Do is on the staff. We will be able to play the passage with a moveable do on our mallet orff instruments.  We use games to drill the concepts taught in this music class.

Class Three: 11:15AM-12:00PM MF 1  (ages 4-6)

This is my first level class designed for younger children {approx ages 4 to 5 } deals with musical opposites: High, Low, Fast , slow, even, uneven, Loud, Soft, beat, no beat and steady beat. Then we start into steady beat, talk about phrases, steps, skips, accent a little bit of sol-fedge which is (Do, re, mi, fa, so, la, te do) but is really interval training, and we end the year with learning how to read rhythm in a way the public schools learn it Ta’s and Te, Te’s and rests, (This is called Koday).  If your child understood all of the concepts in this class from last year they will be ready to move on to Class two.  The younger students who were in this class may need to firm up the concepts by repeating some of them.  We have many experiences with music in this class.
