7-8 Life Music 1st Q 11.12 Lesson Plans
Week: 08/22/2011 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Class period will be shorter today. We will work on 'creating our classroom', defining 'life music' and looking over Mrs. Knott's goals for the class.
Today we will review what we discussed Monday, take time to talk about procedures, have them take a survey and set some personal goals. Take a pretest to determine individual student's skill levels and readiness.
Do some rhythm work with drums and counting right away.
Review the results of the survey and results of the pretests. Pass out checklists. Do some theory of note names and rhythm values. Do drum rhythms and counting, conducting. Split into groups of four. Two keep the beat, two do the rhythms. Count. Switch. Have song set #1 for guitar and chord chart #1 for guitar ready to go as well as guitars tuned.
