Canon Composition

Canon Composition

A worksheet to compose simple Canons. This includes an assessment sheet for students to self-assess and provide feedback from their learning. The worksheet would benefit from a simple preparatory activity using echo-clapping or echo singing to reiterate the principle of Canon. This can be achieved ‘en class’ by dividing the class into two or three sections, which then copy the given rhythm / pattern from the previous section of the class. You can extend this to three bars to create a three-part Canon. The worksheet enables students to create one of three differentiated Canons depending on their ability. The worksheet can act as a preparatory sheet before they use any notation or multi-channel software.

Ragtime Performance

Ragtime Performance

A powerpoint to guide performers who are paired to perform a simple Ragtime piano piece. The guide provides a simple background to how the style originated and evolved leading to some animation of the different parts. This would suit a class who would ideally learn each part in their pairs. The more difficult part is the bass, with the easier part in the treble. The is room for all students learning both parts and then to allocate to themselves, which part would be most suitable for them. In any case, students either perform live or record onto music software to play back to the class or the teacher for appraisal.

Creating Variations PDF format

Creating Variations PDF format

A PDF version of “creating Variations”, which is a practical worksheet which would benefit from an initial demonstration using Garageband or other similar software. This would enable students to create one or more variations on a simple nursery theme. This would suit a class who are familiar with triads already, but are moving on to the use of the three basic triads. Students can be challenged to use their listening skills to see which triad fits the melody at any time. This can be an activity using trial and error initially but refined to create a simple bass line and a fill part using triad notes. It would be expected that this continue to a succeeding lessons, which develops different versions.
