  • Grade Five

     

    Grade 5 will provide you child with 34 hours of general music instruction, which is the equivalent of about 6 days of school time.  If you child has been in ISD#11 since grade one, that is brings the total instructional time to about  170 hours or 28 school days of instruction in 5 years.  What the students are able to learn in this very limited amount of instructional time (about the same time spent at lunch/recess in only one school year) never ceases to amaze me.

     
    This year's major outcomes include advanced pitch matching, rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic ostinatos (repeated patterns) and understandings of rhythmic, melodic, and expressive elements through reading, writing, singing, improvising/creating, moving, playing, and listening.
     
    Rhythmic elements include the eighth-quarter (eq ) figure in compound meter (6/8) as well as dotted quarter-eighth (dq-e ) and dotted eighth-sixteenth (de-s ) in simple meter.
     
    Melodically we move to full diatonic intervals including 1/2 steps with Fa and the introduction of Ti.  Our complete set is now the extended scale in solfége and letter names.

    This composition was done to demonstrate competence in compound time which is a fancy way of saying beats that can contain more rhythms than usual. Instead of quarters, 2-eighths, and rests.  Each beat can contain dotted quarter notes, dotted quarter rests, 3-eighths (triplets) , or the quarter-eighth figure. *Review for returning students.

    Melodic Composition

     

    (D'-LSFMRD)

    Hoover: November

     

    IKE: TBD

    This composition was done to demonstrate competence with the melodic intervals and strategies for Do'-La-Sol-Fa-Mi-Re-DoThe musical scale is made up of pitches that are steps from each other, however not all are full steps. With the addition of "Fa" we now have for the first time a 1/2 step. These intervals are difficult to sing tunefully, so we have avoided labeling them until our voices have matured and become skilled. Attaching a sound lable to an out of tune interval is like producing an "ah" sound and calling it the letter B.
