MODULATION in MUSIC for Middle School

(0)
Modulation in music can be a difficult concept for some students to grasp. This is why I have created this resource. It takes the students step by step through an easy method of understanding modulation and how to incorporate it into their composition work. This 20 page file covers modulation in MAJOR KEYS only, to the dominant, subdominant and relative minor keys. The file contains: ♫ FOUR exercises asking students to write out the dominant, subdominant and relative minor of a given key, and to state the accidental/s that need to occur. ♫ A teaching slide explaining V7 chords ♫ ONE page of exercises where students name and notate the V7 chord of the specified keys ♫ A teaching slide explaining pivot chords ♫ ONE page of exercises where students discover and name the common chords of the specified keys. Two methods for finding the common chords is explained. ♫ FOUR written and practical activities where students create and perform an 8 bar progression that modulates. ♫ ANSWER KEYS for the students exercises are provided.

Teaching young musicians how to write a melody is not easy. I have used the process outlined in this resource for many years with my classes, and it works without fail! My students call it my melody writing recipe! The file contains: -A NINE page Teachers Resource that explains in detail, step by step, a process for young musicians to follow when writing their first four bar melody. -A TEN page Student Workbook I show the slides in the Teachers Resource on a digital projector and demonstrate the information one a white board as we work our way through the slides 2 - 9. You may choose to have your students follow and work in their Student Workbook as you go through the information OR have them watch the demonstration first and then work through their booklet. The students then take the knowledge and process they are learnt to compose TWO 8 bar melodies. The final TWO slides in the Student Workbook can be copied and reused for further melody writing exercises. ***Students will need to have a little background knowledge of keys and chords
