Let’s Play Music-All students sing together and sign melodic cadence patterns. These patterns are common ways that the melody resolves to conclude a song.
Primary Chord Song-In Let’s Play Music we use colors to represent the three primary chords used in music, I is red, IV is blue, V is yellow.
Chords in Pieces - We learn to read chord maps and play the autoharp to prepare us to play the piano next year. We train our ears to recognize the three pieces of the primary chords.
Autoharps: Red Class
Can’t Bug Me-This fun chant is how we learn to read and feel rhythm.
Puppets: Yellow Class
Old Paint- Can you keep a steady beat in 3/4 time while you play the red chord broken into pieces? We can!
Tone Bells: Blue Class
I've Been to Harlem - This Autoharp song teaches to recognize the difference in "major" vs. "minor" tonality.
Autoharps: Yellow Class
B-I-N-G-O- We know you’ve heard this one, so please sing and clap along with us!
There was a farmer had a dog and bingo was his name oh!
And Bingo was his name oh
There was a farmer had a dog and Bingo was his name oh!
And Bingo was his name oh!
Props: Red Class
Frog Went a Hoppin’- The melodic ostinato Do-Sol-Do-Sol played on the bells make a fun hopping accompaniment. Do and Sol are the tonic and dominant degrees of the scale.
Bells: Yellow Class
El Gallo - This song in Spanish means "The Rooster." We love this song because we can learn about harmonic rhythm (a pattern of chords).
Autoharps: Blue Class
Dinosaur Song- We learn the notes of this song by noticing they make a pattern of steps and skips.
Bells: Red Class
Magical Lamp Puppet Show - "Aragonaise" by Georges Bizet. We study form, dynamics, tonality, and much more through the 4 puppet shows we learn each year.
Puppets: Blue Class
Do, Re, Mi-This Let’s Play Music version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein tune teaches Solfege and reminds us the power of internalizing those notes to be able to sing most anything. Listen as we sing two beautiful things at the same time - Harmony!
