Hello all! So nice to see your faces!
Represent music in a visual way - art maps, infographics, etc.
musicfirstclassroom allows students to use a cloud based program for music technology, which will enable students to create wherever they are - whether working virtually or in a hybrid situation.
I do a unit called "Music For All"using Makey-Makeys where students create their own instruments. The premise is to create an instrument that a person can play immediately so they can enjoy music making right away.
Compare/contrast music from various time periods and cultures. What are the historical influences? What are the cultural or historical influences to todays music?
The Google Doc's Add-on entitled "Flat for Docs" is an accessible way to provide a method of music composition. This can be coupled with Schoology's assignment feature where all student work is compiled and filed directly in Schoology. This makes it easy for students to submit their work, and easy for you to organize and streamline student work digitally.
have students share their own personal relationship with music specifically with their culture
Recognize that many students have multiple cultural identities.
Using popular show like American Idol, The Voice and Sunday Best allows students to listen to upcoming artists and their interaction with judges and mentors.
I do an activity where I give students a historical image, and students pick out individuals in the image to propose what the depicted individual may have said, thought, or even come up with their own storyboard about what the individuals in the image are doing. This is great for historic analysis our group discussion afterwards leads them into a greater historical context
Great correlations to Science. Question students on how sound is made. How their own instruments create sound. Sound waves, etc. Create own instruments
VioArm - Prothetic Arm for a 10 year old student to play the violin
Create a backing track for warm-ups using an online program like Soundtrap
Yes! There are some great youtube videos relating music to science!
have students research the many careers involving music outside of performing and teaching, engage with professionals in those fields
The Science of Music is on Safari Montage is a good resource for students in a Music Lab Class. It's old, but still appropriate for 6th graders at least.
Creating space to produce music in non traditional mediums, not just with the tools of technology. 3D printing students new instruments designed in conjunction with STEM teachers and community partners is a way to create differently.
I do a short unit on the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura (Landfill Harmonic), to show the resilience and innovative spirit of a town in Paraguay
I LOVE the idea of shifting our focus on the process of practicing and setting goals, as opposed to minutes practiced.VA Composer Katie LaBrie, has a great resource online for teachers and studentshttps://www.practicewithpurpose.net/
Katie LaBrie (VA Composer) also has "Distance Duets" posted for band and orchestra!https://www.katieoharalabrie.com/distance
When requesting feedback from students on performances they have watched or participated in I use either use padlets.com or I use a Google Form for a survey emphasizing that they use musical terms.
Will all webinars be recorded for future viewing? I ask because I'll be back at school for some of these webinars?
yes they will be!
Thank you Carrie. I thought so. :)
