7-8 Life Music 3rd Q 11.12 Lesson Plans
Week: 03/05/2012 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Announcements: We are off to a fresh start this week. New compositions, new piano music, emphasis on small ensembles of piano/keyboard/guitars/percussion to prepare for next concert as well.
Guitars: continue with chords for our two concert songs
Insist on using strum patterns, encourage singing along, learning the words
Piano: all students will be given new piano pieces to learn
Rhythms and Theory: Some students will be encouraged to write in the key of F this composition, or d minor, so we will practice and study this scale and chords. Other students will stay in the key of a minor or C major. We will emphasize ABA form again, and syncopated rhythms. I will assist their compositions with left hand so they practice immediately with left hand chords.
