We kicked off the week by having our very first performance quiz! Our performance quiz was on a piece called "Spanish Theme Song". This short melody contained all of the notes that we have been working so hard on. After some rehearsal time in pairs, students performed "Spanish Theme Song" in front of their classmates! Congratulations to each and every Exploring Music 6 student on a job well done on the first performance quiz of the unit!
On Wednesday, we used Ipads to help us learn three new notes: B, C, and D. We played a game called NoteDerby. Students were transformed into an equestrian character racing in a horse derby!Students were shown a note and in order to advance in the race they had to select the correct name of the note being shown. We had a lot of fun using the Ipads to help us read musical notation!
Check back next week so see (and maybe hear) our progress with "Ode to Joy"!
