The chart demonstrates intervallic relationships of all the diatonic tones. Suitable for senior secondary and tertiary students. Keyboard Diagram Creator: Darren Wicks Download This chart may be used to explain keyboard theory, intervals and scales to your students. Spacing and size of keys is based on a real keyboard. Using a keyboard chart such as this before moving students onto real keyboards can assist with classroom management issues often associated with group keyboard classes. Some regional variations in the syllables do occur.
Tonic Sol-fa Guide Creator: Darren Wicks Download A reference chart for use of tonic sol-fa with diatonic scales and scale tone triads.

Zoltan Kodaly - Hungarian: Kod? March 6, was a Hungarian composer, ethnomusicologist, educator, linguist, and philosopher. Born in Kecskem? His father was a stationmaster and keen amateur musician, and Kod?
He also sang in a cathedral choir and wrote music, despite having little formal musical education. InKod? One of the first people to undertake the serious study of folk tales, Kod? From he visited remote villages to collect songs recording them on phonograph cylinders.
Around this time Kod? The two became lifelong friends and champions of each other's music. After gaining his PhD in philosophy and linguistics, Kod? There he discovered and absorbed various influences, notably the music of Claude Debussy. In he moved back to Budapest and gained a professorship at the Academy of Music there. He continued his folk music-collecting expeditions through World War I without interruption. All these works show a great originality of form and content, a very interesting blend of highly sophisticated mastery in the Western-European style of music, including classical, late-romantic, impressionistic and modernist tradition and at the other hand profound knowledge and respect for the folk music on Hungary, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Albania and other Eastern-European countries.
Due to the outbreak of the First World War and subsequent major geopolitical changes in the region and partly because of the personal shyness Kod? Following this success, Kod? Beginning inalong with colleague Jend?
His work resulted in the publication of several highly influential books and he had a profound impact on musical education both inside and outside his home country. Some commentators refer to his ideas as the 'Kod?
Method', although this seems something of a misnomer, as he did not actually work out a comprehensive method, rather laying down a set of principles to follow in music education. See also: Kod? Hand Signs. Portrait of Zolt? The suite from his opera H?His first concern was for the musically literate amateur, not the professional musician.
His dream was a musically literate nation. As the one instrument children already have, the voice is the most accessible way for children to learn music. Children can experience making music without having to concentrate on the many different aspects of playing an instrument.
Just as we speak before we learn to read and write, in this method, children learn to sing songs containing elements they will later be taught to name, recognise aurally and visuallyread, write and create using improvisation and composition. This creates a strong foundation where the child is familiar and comfortable with the sound before the more abstract naming of the concept.
With so much music available, there is no need to compromise musical integrity by using music that is inferior or is obviously contrived to achieve an educational purpose. For teaching rhythms, French time names are used as they imitate the rhythmic sound. The number of syllables of the note names corresponds with the number of sounds per beat. Curwen hand signs are used to reinforce intervallic feeling.
They present a visual and kinaesthetic sensation of pitch and intervals between notes as they are sung. The method also takes into account melodic sounds they can sing in tune. For example. More complicated rhythms such as syncopated rhythms are taught later. For countries where syncopation is the natural music language of the culture, it would be taught much earlier.
For instance children in Guyana, South America grow up singing and playing rhythms that we would find very challenging. To them the straight beat of tas and ti-tis would be unfamiliar and may need to be taught later. This child-based development sequence is also applied to learning music with partschordsmusical formsexpressive elements and historical styles.
Each musical concept is first prepared through singing repertoire containing that musical concept in a clear contextthen made conscious named and finally practised in known and new songs.
No new sound or concept is taught before children have learnt and sung and possibly played a number of songs in which the concept clearly in evidence. Through making music, singing songs, playing music games and dancing, music becomes a very practical, fun and understandable subject rather than being a struggle to study abstract concepts to which students cannot relate.

This method uses folk songsCurwen hand signs, pictures, movable-do, rhythm symbols, and syllables. It was first introduced in Hungary but is now used in many countries, either alone or in combination with other methods. The Kodaly Method is an approach to music education based on the philosophies of Zoltan Kodaly. Zoltan Kodaly was a Hungarian composer, author, educator, and expert on Hungarian folk songs.
Although this method wasn't exactly invented by Kodaly, it was developed by his colleagues and students in the midth century based on his teachings. Songs of high artistic value, both folk and composed, are used in the Kodaly classroom. Songs that are in the pentatonic scale are emphasized at the beginning level.
According to Kodaly, " Nobody wants to stop at pentatony. But, indeed, the beginnings must be made there; on the one hand, in this way the child's biogenetical development is natural and, on the other, this is what is demanded by a rational pedagogical sequence. The voice is the main musical instrument of this method. In his words, " Singing connected with movements and action is a much more ancient, and, at the same time, more complex phenomenon than is a simple song.
Although the Kodaly Method follows a set sequence, the materials used in teaching musical concepts varies depending on the age of the student. The sequence followed may be simplified as: listen - sing - understand - read and write - create. Using this method under the guidance of a certified Kodaly teacher, students can develop listening skills, sight-singing, ear training, learn how to play instruments, compose, improvise, sing, dance, analyze, read and write music.

We have had a very unusual Spring this year. We have had tons and tons of rain. I can't actually remember a day in the last two weeks that we haven't gotten a little bit of rain and most days we have gotten a good down-pouring.
A few weeks ago I took advantage of the rain and included some fun activities for "Rain Rain Go Away". Looking for ready made slides like these? My kids just LOVE this. We talk through a rain storm. What happens? Before the storm, the sun is out. Then the clouds come and it begins to start raining with just little sprinkles of rain. The rain gets heavier and heavier and may eventually be accompanied by thunder and lightning. Eventually the thunder and lightning stop.
The rain slows down to a stop. After we talk through it, pull out instruments to help us make those sounds - rain sticks, hand drums or thunder drums if you have them. The kids who do not get an instrument are body percussion rain drops on their laps or the floor.
If you lay a hand drum on the floor in front of you and play with just the tips of your fingers like typing on a keyboard slowly it makes a cool sound for the start and end of the rain. I let one person stand at the lights and give us a few quick lightning flashes. We assign one person to be the sun and one to be the rain clouds. Let me know if you have done something similar.
You could even incorporate the song into it as an A section, have the storm be B, and then end with singing the A again. Put on your favorite rainy music and play freeze dance.
