4 CPI # B B B B A.1 Cumulative Progress Indicator (CPI) Explore the elements of music through verbal and written responses to diverse aural prompts and printed scores. Identify musical elements in response to diverse aural prompts, such as rhythm, timbre, dynamics, form, and melody. Identify and categorize sound sources by common traits (e.g., scales, rhythmic patterns, and/or other musical elements), and identify rhythmic notation up to eighth notes and rests. Categorize families of instruments and identify their associated musical properties. Identify characteristic theme-based works of dance, music, theatre, and visual art, such as artworks based on the themes of family and community, from various historical periods and world cultures A B B B B B B B B B B.3 Identify how artists and specific works of dance, music, theatre, and visual art reflect, and are affected by, past and present cultures. Clap, sing, or play on pitch from basic notation in the treble clef, with consideration of pitch, rhythm, dynamics, and tempo. Demonstrate developmentally appropriate vocal production/vocal placement and breathing technique. Demonstrate correct playing techniques for Orff instruments or equivalent homemade instruments. Vocalize the home tone of familiar and unfamiliar songs, and demonstrate appropriate posture and breathing technique while performing songs, rounds, or canons in unison and with a partner. Improvise short tonal and rhythmic patterns over ostinatos, and modify melodic or rhythmic patterns using selected notes and/or scales to create expressive ideas. Sing or play simple melodies or rhythmic accompaniments in AB and ABA forms independently and in groups, and sight-read rhythmic and music notation up to and including eighth notes and rests in a major scale. Blend unison and harmonic parts and vocal or instrumental timbres while matching dynamic levels in response to a conductor s cues.

5 Unit Essential Questions What is the difference between your head voice and your chest voice? How do I write a song? How do I know what note to play? What is rhythm? Why are there different staffs? Why are there strange symbols on my music? How does the instrument work? How do I notate a song? Why does he sound better than me? What type of music is this? Where did rock come from? What is a composer and can I become one? What is Subdivision? What are the instruments I could play? How can dancing help me with music? Are dance and music similar? What is concert etiquette? Unit Enduring Understandings Students will identify and demonstrate their vocal break. Music is composed using various mathematic patterns and formulas. The various staffs help us identify and what note to play. Rhythm is a complex passage using various different lengths of sound in various patterns. Different staffs make it easier to identify specific tones. Musical notation uses various symbols to minimize notation and communicate the intention of the composer. Every school will demonstrate the function and anatomy of their method. Songs are written mathematic patterns divided into measures that add to particular numbers. Playing an instrument requires practice and achievement is dependent upon the amount of time you dedicate. Music from various nations have different nuances that make them distinct. Modern music was influenced by many different styles and genres throughout time. A composer writes many types of music. There are lots of careers that could be offered to composers. Every note can be divided into smaller and smaller parts of time. There are many different types of instruments that can be divided into different groups and families. Each family has distinct and common elements. Feeling music throughout your body helps develop and internal beat that transfers to all aspects of music. Dancing and music have common patterns and mathematic contrasts that further develop your ability as a musician. Understanding the amount of time a musician put into a song shows you why listening respectfully is so important 4
