Lesson Plans
General Music 8A 2nd Q 12.13 Lesson Plans
Week: 11/26/2012 Instructor: Kyle Gertner Academics
Starting work on transpositions.
students with instruments should get them out and we will discuss how/why instruments transpose. We will also learn some of the transpositions of the common band instruments and work with them.
Same as yesterday but more in depth. We will work more with transposing one instrument to another. Students that play instruments will talk about their instruments and why they chose that one and how they play it. I will have a transposition worksheet made up and the students can work from their notes to understand how to transpose from one instrument to another.
We will continue working on transposing instruments, but in groups. I want the students to rewrite some music given to them into another instruments' reading range. After that, in the same groups, I want the students to write their own music with two instruments, one transposing, and one nontransposing.
