Lesson Plans
7-8 Life Music 2nd Q 11.12 Lesson Plans
Week: 12/05/2011 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Announcements:This will be a fun week because it is a week of new beginnings. Students will get their next checkoff sheet by the end of the week.
Piano Skills:Students will begin new piano pieces for practice and note learning. There is a wider disparity in playing level now and we try to individualize as much as possible. We have our class split into three groups for piano
Guitars:We are learning new chords for the two songs we will play at the Pops concert: Bad Moon Rising and Proud Mary
In addition we will work on strumming patterns
Composing/Finale program:For our next composing series the students will be encouraged to use syncopated rhythm patterns. We hope to have more students using both hands to play their pieces as well. We will continue with 2 four bar phrases with repetition of the first four measures with ending.
Music Theory/Rhythms:We will be drilling lots of rhythm patterns and reviewing note names to correlate with keys on the piano
