Homework Help: Music Literacy

1. The second order is to know the beat and rhythm of the song. This means clapping and waling to the beat and rhythm. It also means mapping out the rhythm as a class exercise on the board using the abbreviated notation as demonstrated in the video clip. This is explained in detail and can be applied to all developmental songs taught. (When mapping the rhythm – do not use blobs on the bottom of notes. This is only done when notating pitch.

2. The third order is to map the pitch. This means graphing a stave. If you are only teaching a song using 2 notes (eg; See Saw, or Starlight), and the notes are consecutive notes – soh – me – then you only need to have a stave of 2 lines. This is important because it will provide a succinct stave that is easily comprehended. Don’t use a full stave of 5 lines! It only confuses. As you have songs with more notes, you will need to provide more lines. At this stage I would also keep to graphing the notes ‘soh and me’ as on consecutive lines – even though they can be consecutive spaces.

Can someone please help me write 2 songs (hand written/or pro music sheet) for these problems?
