Music notation facilitates music analysis. People notate music to preserve, communicate and express ideas. Music notation organizes sound. Melody is a combination of high and low sounds How does notation help us read and notate music? Why do musicians notate music? Why is music notation important? How can you identify a melody? How do you create a recognizable melody? What is the difference between melody and harmony? Identify and notate melodic contour. Determine and identify intervallic relationship between pitches (la-sol-mi-re-do). Melody can occur with or without accompaniment in music from all time periods and cultures. Identify Do and La as tonal centers. Identify steps and skips in standard notation. Accurately sing pitches (la-sol-mi-re-do) from iconic and traditional notation. Kinesthetically and visually represent melodic contour. Improvise Do-based and Labased pentatonic melodies for voice and Orff instruments. Echo pentatonic melodic patterns using Curwen/ Glover hand signs or placement on "body scale." Distinguish between melody with or without accompaniment in a diverse variety of music. Perform melodic ostinati. Create harmony to accompany a melody on Orff instruments. Perform 3 and 4 part speech and melodic canons and rounds, and partner songs The elements of music are building blocks denoting meter, rhythmic concepts, progressions, all of which contribute to musical literacy B.2-Demonstrate the basic concepts of meter, rhythm, progressions, and differentiate basic structures.

6 Duration: October/Week 6 - May/Week 35 UNIT NAME: Timbre Enduring Understandings Essential Questions Knowledge Skills Standards Timbre, or tone color, is the unique quality that makes one instrument or voice sound different from any other. Instruments with similiar timbre can be grouped into "families." Some timbres are more suitable for certain styles of music. Some timbres have pitch, while others do not. What is timbre? What is the criteria for grouping instruments into four "families?" Why are some timbres more suitable for certain styles of music? How does one describe timbre? Identify and distinguish between timbre of pitched and non-pitched percussion instruments. The four instrument families are brass, woodwinds, percussion, strings. Identify and distinguish between members of the brass, string, and woodwind families (trumpet, horn, trombone, tuba; violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar, harp; flute, clarinet, oboe, saxophone, and bassoon). Aurally and visually identify the four instrument families (brass, woodwinds, percussion, strings). Aurally and visually identify the trumpet, horn, trombone, tuba, violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar, harp, autoharp, flute, clarinet, oboe, saxophone, and bassoon. Sing with appropriate vocal technique (breathing and posture) B.1-Identify the elements of music in response to aural prompts and printed music notational systems.

Expression dictates how the music should be performed. Characteristics of expression affect the listeners of the same piece in different ways. What is tempo? What are dynamics? What elements of music contribute to the mood of a piece of music? How do other expressive elements (fermata, staccato, etc.) affect the performance of a piece of music? Distinguish between fast and slow tempi. Distinguish between loud and soft dynamics. Mood is conveyed through characteristics of expression, such as dynamics and tempo. Identify tempo changes using appropriate vocabulary (largo, andante, allegro). Identify dynamics using appropriate vocabulary and symbols (P, F, mf, mp, pp, ff, cresc., descres.). Identify expressive symbols, such as fermata, staccato, legato and accent. Create appropriate kinesthetic reponses to tempo changes. Create appropriate kinesthetic responses to dynamic changes, both sudden and gradual.
