(a) To understand the concept of melodic sequence through performing composing and listening.
Notes for guidance
To hear the MIDI files, a plug-in is required to hear them. The standard Windows media player is barely adequate. A preferred MIDI player is the crescendo plug-in.
Pupils could compose their own sequences using a sequencer and use the transpose function of the sequencer to shift the pattern of notes up or down. The pupil should also learn how to divide the sequence so that each individual pattern can be shifted up or down in pitch.
On a scorewriter the same is possible using the copy paste function.
Pitched percussion instruments such as keyboards and glockenspiels.
