Kodály Musicianship Class
Fridays 5:30-6:15pm (45 minute class)
This course will review concepts from Kodály Level 1 and 2, and will deepen students’ musicianship skills. It will focus on developing singing and aural skills through solfège in the pentatonic scale (do, re, mi, so, la) 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, quarter rest, half note, and sixteenth 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 review musical terminology covered in Level 2, and will also learn the letter names of the treble clef, repeat sign, sharps, flats, binary, and ternary form.
