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 Choir - Weeks Two and Three

Music Activities | Middle School Choir

Choose an activity.

Complete three activities this week. Submit a response for each activity you complete to your music teacher.

Perform

Take a song you are familiar with and perform it for your family. It can be a piece you have practiced or performed with your class. Do you have YouTube videos you can perform with, an instrumental or karaoke track? Ask someone to record your performance and review it together.

Guess

Listen to a classical music radio station for at least 3 pieces. Journal what you hear using the following questions: What instruments are involved? When do you think it was written? What country do you think the composer was from? Why did you or didn’t you like it?

Compare

Find two different videos on YouTube of choirs performing the same song. How were they different? How were they the same? Using specific music vocabulary (dynamics, intonation, tone quality, accents etc.) describe how they were similar or different.

Writing

What’s your ‘Stuck-because-of-COVID-19’ playlist? Create a list with at least 5 tracks you’ve been listening to. Why did you choose these songs? What do these songs mean to you during our isolation? Share your playlist and your answers.

Compose

Using a song you know, compose new lyrics for the verse or the refrain. Share your lyrics with a family member. Were your lyrics a reflection of what the music makes you feel? What was your inspiration?

Interview

Interview a family member about music. Here are some sample questions you could use: What is your favorite type of music to listen to? How does it make you feel? When do you like to listen to music most? Why do you listen to music?

Theory

Create a four-measure rhythm in 4/4 or 3/4 time signature using the following notes: whole notes, whole rests, half notes, half rests, quarter notes, quarter rests, eighth notes or eighth rests. Come up with a variety of rhythm every measure, then clap the rhythm or play it on an instant cajon!

Record

Using any device, record the sounds in your house, yard, or outside. Note the time date of your recording. What is different in your recording because of the Coronavirus isolation? What is the same? What sounds caught your interest the most in this recording?
