Online Kodály Musicianship classes will consist of synchronous and asynchronous learning. Asynchronous- there will be a pre-recorded weekly video from the instructor, Melissa Rooklidge, with new songs and instructions for the corresponding music worksheet for the student. Synchronous- weekly 25 minute Zoom class with interactive songs, musical activities, and games.

 

This course will review concepts from Kodály Level 1 and 2 (previous courses not required), and will deepen students’ musicianship skills. It will focus on developing singing and aural skills through solfège in the pentatonic scale through songs, rounds, and incorporating melodic ostinati (repeated patterns). It will continue to build music literacy skills with the following rhythms: quarter note, eighth notes,  sixteenth notes, quarter rest, half note, and whole notes. Students will read, write, compose, and improvise with these notes and rhythms in the major keys C, G, and F. They will conduct in simple meters of 2/4 and 4/4, and will develop inner hearing skills through a variety of exercises. Students will learn musical terminology as well as binary forms of music. Utilizing musical materials, classroom instruments, and body percussion, students will learn an array of songs and instrumental pieces in varying meters, tempos, and keys to continue the development of their musicianship skills. Come experience the joy of music making in Kodály class!
