7-8 Life Music 2nd Q 11.12 Lesson Plans
Week: 11/07/2011 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
This Week:
This is a rewarding time as we prepare for the concert in two weeks. The students have been divided into four ensembles. Within each ensemble:
- one student will play a piano piece that was composed by an individual in the ensemble
- one or more students will play guitar
- one or more students will play percussion rhythm patterns, and some groups have a student playing chords on mallet instruments.
- each group has a drummer playing a pattern.

Also for our concert there will be some piano solos, and piano duets.
Week's Work Plan:
1. Student performing on the keyboards or piano for the concert will get additional practice time.
2. All students will work with their group to keep a steady beat and keep the song flowing.
3. All students will resume practicing their own compositions; working to include the left hand chords.
4. All students will resume practicing piano songs from Mrs. Klasse
5. All students will resume practicing guitar chords of C G7 F and folksongs
Week's Schedule:
Monday: ensemble practice
Wednesday: individual practice; special attention given to those performing pieces at the concert
Friday: ensembles perform for one another in a trial run
