     4th Grade Performing Arts; Music
   1.1 Read, write, and perform melodic
    notation for simple songs
   1.3 Read, write, and perform rhythmic
    notation, including sixteenth and dotted
    notes
   2.3 Compose and improvise simple rhythmic
    and melodic patterns on classroom
    instruments
                 Technology

   Over the next three days students will be
    working with a music notation program on
    class computers

   At the end of the project the class will use
    a video camera to record their
    performances
             Objective

  Students will learn to combine simple
   rhythmic and melodic notation into a
 musical arrangement. They will compose
their own short piece and perform in small
           groups for the class.
         Day One: Rhythm




                     Motivation
       Students will get to play rhythms with small
percussion instruments and create their own beats. At
  the beginning of class students will get to hear an
         example of a percussion ensemble
         Input             Comprehension
   Review whole, half,       Using flash cards with
    and quarter note           one measure rhythms
    rhythms                    on each ask students
                               to clap the rhythms
   Learn sixteenth note       both as a class and
    relationship and           individually
    rhythms
        Practice and More Practice
   In groups of 4, ask           Exchange compositions
    students to compose an         with another group and
    8 measure rhythm               ask to sight read
    melody using
    percussion instruments

   Transfer compositions         Compare written
    onto a music notation          notation with group’s
    program, such as               original ideas
    Finale, and print it out
               Assessment
   By asking one group to play another group’s
      composition I am assessing two things:

1) The performing group’s understanding of
  rhythm (are they reading it correctly?)

2) The composing group’s understanding of
  notation (are they notating the rhythms the way
  they are hearing them?)
              Day 2: Melody




                       Motivation
Students will get to hear examples of solo instruments.
Students will then get to play and sing simple melodies
     using their voices and classroom instruments
         Input             Comprehension
   Review rhythm             Ask small groups of
    notation                   students to sight sing
                               short melodies
   Sing easy, step-wise      Compose a melody as
    motion melodies as a       a class and sing
    class
                    Practice
   Get into the same          Ask another group to
    groups from the day         play melody and
    before and compose          compare performance
    an 8 measure melody         with original ideas
    for voice or recorder
   Notate onto Finale
    music program and
    print out
                 Assesment
   By asking one group to play another group’s
       composition I am assessing two things:
1)The performing group’s ability to sight read a
   simple melody (are the pitches correct?)

2)The composing group’s ability to notate melodic
   ideas (is the melody that was notated the
   same as the melody intended?)
           Day Three:
  Combining Rhythm and Melody




                   Motivation

Students get to work together to create a musical
                   arrangement
      Input and Comprehension


   Play some examples in class using
    percussion and vocals/instruments

   Check student’s pitch and rhythm
                    Practice
   Ask groups to create       Notate whole
    a melody for voice or       arrangement onto
    recorder and then           Finale and print
    compose a rhythmic         Practice as an
    accompaniment using         ensemble
    new rhythmic values
                   Closure

   Students will play their compositions for
    the class.
   We will record the performances and
    watch the video in class. It can also be
    shown to parents at “open house.”
