I have a module on composition...giving the tools to students to provide success.
Jennifer Frerichs
47:34
In my second grade class we do the song "Skip to my Lou". After going through it, their culminating activity is to work collaboratively in a group to create a movement for a given verse. They then perform their verse for the class.
Estavia Rowe
47:52
My students enjoy creating in the Blues form. A fun way to express their emotions and dig into Jazz genre.

David Vita

I intend to use a software "drum machine" so that student's can create their own looped rhythms.
Emily Anuszkiewicz
48:23
Making creative movement to a piece of classical music based on the form of the piece.
Caitlyn Lester
48:52
My Kindergarten students enjoy creating music to accompany a favorite book (we use the Mo Willems Pigeon Books)
David Vita
49:16
This is for an online lesson: https://drumbit.app/
Nichole Reynolds
49:39
using movement to illustrate theme and variations
Marie Weber
49:44
Listening to an unknown selection and having the student create movements that go with the beat.
Estavia Rowe
50:03
https://musiclab.chromeexperiments.com/Song-Maker Students can create a song and email the final product to me or drop the link in our shared Google Doc.
Angie Coleman
51:07
I use the peanuts theme song for rondo form. They not only follow movements I share, but they also create their own movements in small groups.The kids love it!
Emily Anuszkiewicz
51:21
Give students a simple melodic theme and ask them to create a variation of it by changing either the rhythm or the melody.
Cynthia Marshall
51:37
My students in grades K-2 enjoy creating an accompaniment to a favorite book.
Kelsey Sykes
52:36
Resource for listening journals: Musicplay has listening logs as part of their listening kits
Kelsey Sykes
52:47
Resource for rubrics: Teachers Pay Teachers or Pinterest - just search “composition rubric” or “performance self assessment” - you can adapt an existing rubric to your needs if you can’t find one for your exact needs. Also, most music curriculums have some form of a self-evaluation for students.
Charlotte Gingerelli
53:08
In this virtual time, student can record and submit a sound- such a sound from nature or the kitchen, or favorite game. Students submit the sound. Then discuss hoe to organize. I will create a rough draft based on the discussion and then they can make edits.
Estavia Rowe
53:31
With the use of Google Classroom and shared documents, peer feedback is more successful than what I've experienced during live instruction.
Emily Anuszkiewicz
53:58
I like purposeful pathways series of books written by Roger Sams and Beth Ann Hepburn.
Ingrid Mostrom
54:06
I like the idea of playing a familiar "tune" and having students choose what tempo and/or dynamic level at which it should be played .
Emily Anuszkiewicz
55:56
This is a great website for kids to explore instruments from around the world.http://instrumentsoftheworld.com/
David Vita
57:09
For upper grades (3-5) I teach rhythms of the African Diaspora (and teach about the Diaspora) starting with body percussion and then moving onto instruments. For online, I plan to adapt it for bucket drumming.
Anne Smith
58:48
I have used The Hallelujah Chorus by the Morman Tabernacle Choir and Handel's Soulful Messiah for a guided discussion comparing and contrasting the two.
Emily Anuszkiewicz
59:25
Great website for teaching kids about copyright. https://www.commonsense.org/education/articles/the-right-stuff-teaching-kids-about-copyright
Ingrid Mostrom
59:41
After the students "compose" their songs/tunes, I ask questions about how they would feel if someone else took their piece and claimed it as their own (5th grade)--copyright.
Natalie Chenault
01:00:21
Use a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast “Ho-Down”… versions by Copland and McFerrin/Yo Yo Ma
Estavia Rowe
01:00:27
The population at my school is very diverse. Throughout the year students in grades 5-6, volunteer to present songs/dances/instruments from their ancestry. It's amazing to see students as leaders.
Ingrid Mostrom
01:00:31
I ask students to turn off sound when watching a video, and then verbalize how music makes the video better.
Anne Smith
01:01:46
I work with classroom teachers,our social worker and our technology specialist when we discuss copyright, plagerisim and theft.
Cynthia Marshall
01:01:56
I have started the petting zoo with Kindergarten to introduce the instruments in my classroom as well as inviting members of the military band to come in and share with upper grade levels to include a petting zoo for them as well.
Charlotte Gingerelli
01:02:02
Students vote to choose from one of the classroom history books and song books. Then we find recordings online, listen and discuss. I use Sweet Honey in the Rock, THe Bat Boy and His Violin, and Louis Armstrong's If I only Had a Horn.
Angie Coleman
01:02:48
In March, I have students learn about the Irish culture and instruments from the Medieval time period. I have them research the most creative/weird instruments (I.e bladder pipe) then design their own instrument with knowledge learned in the lesson.
Ingrid Mostrom
01:03:02
FLAT is a resource for composing music. I think it's free.
Nichole Reynolds
01:03:03
I do a project with my 5th graders to illustrate the importance of music in movies - the students get to create their own "silent films" and choose music to accompany it.
Emily Anuszkiewicz
01:03:06
You could show a silent film and ask students to create digital music to it using chrome music lab to enhance the silent film.
Anne Smith
01:03:30
Students get to discuss their favorite video game when we discuss mood. They explore how the musical genre is used to set the tone for the game.
Caitlyn Lester
01:03:31
For Innovation in the arts strand: A virtual field trip to a music studio where the students get to hear about and virtually interact with producers, sound engineers, and performers about what it is like today to produce music
David Vita
01:03:47
I mentioned this earlier, but using online tools like the drum machine helps kids understand they can create and then process using digital tools: https://drumbit.app/
Tim Wilson
01:04:44
Students use madpad or other applications to record sound bites to create music compositions to perform in various forms of music.
Ingrid Mostrom
01:04:53
Have small groups of students play the role of producer (1 student), performer (1 student), etc. Perform this & write down/record responses. Then change roles & do again, until all members of the group have experienced each role.
David Vita
01:05:58
Technique and Application, I think, is well supported by vocal instruction and movement. Though we cannot teach vocals on site (pandemic), we can use Flipgrid to demonstrate vocal technique and have students video their own attempt and share it with the teacher.
Tim Wilson
01:06:09
Create a musical pizza-toppings have different word rhythms.
Ingrid Mostrom
01:06:14
Would Chrome Lab be an example for the Technique & Application?
Charlotte Gingerelli
01:06:52
Relating to the fifth grade study of wave theory in science, students learned about electricity. We learned the electric slide, and the students LOVED it. I was surprised that it was such a hit. I guess the 80's are vintage now.
Ingrid Mostrom
01:07:12
Have student play a piece of their choosing for the class/group/me.
Charlotte Gingerelli
01:08:03
Do a scarf dance to Saint-Saens Aquarium. Match the scarf to the pitch.
Anne Smith
01:10:02
I use Uptown Funk to teach note values. Balls, sticks, or Body Percussion all work well.
David Vita
01:11:45
The ukulele chords to Uptown Funk aren't very difficult!
Shelley Greene
01:12:52
Hi Ingrid! Chrome Lab was just one suggestion for the Innovation In The Arts strand, but you could implement use of the Chrome Lab platform in your classroom within the Technique and Application strand as a way for students to compose (as opposed to singing) songs of different styles. This would potentially be useful for students who may be nonverbal, or shy/reluctant to sing in class.
