Year 7 :  Pitch

Lesson 5

 

Objectives

(a)  To understand octaves in melodic composition.
 

Notes for guidance

Recommended software
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.

ICT opportunities
Pupils could use a sequencer to layer the different patterns in activity 2.
 

Resources
Pitched percussion instruments such as keyboards and glockenspiels.
