Scale Builder Major Scales Workbook teaching Tool PDF, learn the structure of major scales. Grade 1

This 47 page instant download workbook has been designed to help students understand the sequencing of intervals in major scales. The booklet is available as a pdf so that it can be screen shared with students during virtual teaching or printed out and used by the student at home. The booklet has been designed so that you can introduce the information one bit at a time and use it either as one lesson or broken down into different parts depending on the time available to you and what best suits your student. It also contains two games to facilitate learning. It has been designed to help students understand both Semi Tones and Tones and the sequence that they appear in, in the Major Scale. I designed this workbook inspired by a student of my cousin who was struggling to memorise her scales. We both concluded the student would find it easier if she understood what they were. Hopefully by the end of studying this booklet and playing the games included a student will have an understand of how a major scale comes together and will be able to write one out for themselves. My cousin gave the best feedback I could hope for, she said this workbook enabled her to work through the concepts in a organised way and, and this is the good bit, it helped her understand what it is the student does and doesn’t know at this stage. That is so good as teachers, if we can work out what it is our students don’t know we are so much better equipped to help them. I hope this workbook will help your students to under and scales better, feel more confident with them and therefore be able to play them with more confidence, less tension and maybe even enjoy them a bit more! Examples of the pages can be seen in the photograph, an explanation for teachers is included. Why not add this to your repertoire of teaching tools. Wishing you happy teaching. Also check out our game Major Second Minor Second Shark Chase, a great follow up game to this workbook, also available from FunMusic Matters.

Lyric Learning Cards, 50+ different designs, learn your song words more easily

Lyric Learning Cards, 50+ different designs, learn your song words more easily

(0)
Available in 53 different designs, choose the design that you want to use for your song and print out as many cards as there are words in the song. Each design comes with 6 cards per sheet of A4. The learner then writes the words on the cards, one word per card. The act of writing out the words one at a time helps the learner to engage with the words in a physical way. Just as when young children are learning to read and write we encourage them to make marks and form letters using not only pens and paper but moulding clays or writing letters in the sand, the simple act of writing out the words help us notice and receive them in a new way. You might find a design that reflects the mood or the theme of the song amongst the 53 different styles. Or you might just like to choose one that you like. If we find our learning tools visually pleasing we’re much more likely to pick them up and use them. Here’s some suggestions for how you can use your cards: Shuffle the cards and then lay them out putting the words in the correct order. Lay out the cards in the correct order, remove some of the cards, see if you are able to sing the words correctly with just a few missing. Continue to remove a few cards at a time, checking to see if you can remember all the words before you remove some more, until there are no cards left. Use the cards to help you understand your prompt words. Prompt words are those words that prompt you to remember a whole line. You might have three of four prompt words in a verse of a song. They might be the first word of each line or they might not. Once you have established which are your prompt words, lay out only those cards and practice reciting the words. Use your cards to help you see structure and repetition in the song words, count how many times a word or a phrase is repeated. Use your lyric cards to remove you from the music and focus only on the story of the song. Lay out your cards and practice reciting your words as a poem. If we really understand what it is we are saying we will more accurately express the meaning of the song. Use your lyric cards to help you find the natural accents of the words of the song. Lay out your cards and recite the words of the song. Where do the natural stresses of the words fall. Imagine you are reciting them as a poem aloud. This can be particularly useful for music from the Baroque era. But it can be useful for music of any era.
