How to Use This Page

This page contains a "menu" of lessons and activities for this week's learning at home. You will find the objectives: the specific skills that your child will be able to do. Then you will find a selection of lessons and activities which help your child master those skills. If you run into technical issues or other difficulties with any of these, simply move on and choose another. These activities fit into the Sample Dailly Schedule.

Please keep the following in mind:

  • Your child DOES NOT have to complete all activities listed for each subject.
  • Activities have been identified to give your child choice and variety.
  • Your child's teacher may suggest other activities more appropriate for your child.

Middle School Band and Orchestra - Weeks Three and Four

Middle School Band & Orchestra

Music Activities Board

Weeks 3 and 4

4-20 through 5-3

Developed by the TUSD Music Staff

Every week, the TUSD Fine and Performing Arts Department will share a new activity board for our

at-home musicians. Make sure to share your music learning with your teacher and let them know if you would like more musical enrichment experiences!

Pick two or more activities to do! Share what you did with your teacher.

Music Theory

Using rhythms that you know, write 4 rhythm patterns that are at least 10 beats long. Say out loud, clap or stomp them and then teach them to another family member. If you have your instrument, try to play the rhythm on notes that you know. Send your rhythm patterns to your teacher!

Guided Listening

Pay attention to the music in a show you enjoy. Write down what was happening while the music was playing and how the music was used in the story. How does the music impact your experience as an audience member?

Practice at Home

Practice a short portion of any music. After playing/singing it one time, try to improve something using practice ideas your teacher uses in class. Send a recording of your practice session to your teacher if you can and share what you tried to improve.

Music History

Read a book about music or a musician. There are books about music and biographies of musicians online if you don’t have one. You can also ask your teacher for options. What book did you read?

What did you find interesting?

Interview/Discuss

Discuss your most powerful music memories with a family member. Pick three music memories and share much detail as you can about the memories including the performer, location, year, song name, what you were doing, etc.

Vocabulary

Design and draw a new musical instrument. Label the parts of the instrument. Explain, using musical terms, how your instrument would be played. Does it fit into any instrument families that you already know?

Write/Respond

Listen to a band/orchestra song of your choice. Give the composer and piece name. What instruments do you hear? Does this piece of music remind you of any other music you have played/heard? How does this song make you feel?

Perform/Compose

Think of a simple song you are familiar with like “Twinkle, Twinkle.” Pick a topic and write new lyrics for the song. Teach the song to someone in your family and, if you can, share a recording with your teacher!
