Lesson Plans
General Music 7B 2nd Q 13.14 Lesson Plans
Week: 12/16/2013 Instructor: Constance Knott Academics
Music Listening: Continue with Beethoven: 5th Symphony, piano concerto, string quartet, and piano sonata.
World Music; Asian folk and pop pieces
Popular Music: Student choice for the week; Mrs. Knott's choice is a piece by fun.
Music Literacy: Work extensively with our folk song booklet. We drill and practice rhythms, write, read, and sing solfege before words with each piece. We will go back and sing all the songs from booklet one to cap off the semester

Fun Activities: Wishy Washy. Bullfrog song, Four White Horses, we will add one more
Composing: Students finished third composition last week and performed them with their small groups providing accompaniment.

They asked to do another; I think we will do some improvisation with Orff instruments' using a chord progression, rhythm patterns and guitars
Ensemble Work: We will concentrate on our Folk Song Booklets by adding percussion and Orff in our small groups. Each group can choose a piece and create their own jam ideas
Testing: We will likely take a quarter final on Thursday
