We started off the week by putting our composing skills to work. First, students individually created a four measure rhythm using a variety of quarter notes, eighth notes, and half notes. Then students split up into small groups to create a "super song" comprised of all of the individual compositions. Students played these compositions on their guitars on the notes E, F and G and had the opportunity to perform for their classmates.
As the week continued on, we began to play several short musical examples utilizing the notes E, F, and G. By Tuesday, we learned our song for our first quiz called "Spanish Theme Song". We had time to practice "Spanish Theme Song" on Wednesday and had our first performance quiz on Thursday. Check out what the song looks like in musical notation below! The 4th period Exploring Music Class is shown in the video below performing "Spanish Theme Song"! Be sure to check ParentPortal for your musician's results!
