Lesson Plan : Basic Rhythmic Values

Teacher Name:
 Mr. Stilwell
 Grade 9-10

 Note Values
 Whole notes, Half notes, Quarter notes, Eight notes, (Sixteenth notes). Whole rest, Half rest, Quarter rest, Eight rest, (Sixteenth rest).
 To learn basic rhythmic note values, and confidently use these terms for the values, along with the ability to retain and utilize the rhythms.
 To be able to clap each rhythmic division. When given a grade appropriate music, is able to clap and comprehend the rhythms.
 One's own hands and various hand percussion.
 Rhythms are used to create music, and the feel of music is based off of the rhythm. We use a combination of the 4 main durations of beats to create rhythmic patterns which are put together creating music! (play a very rhythmically centred percussion solo to kickstart their minds and get them thinking about the future possibilities)
 Model in 4/4: -a whole note lasting 4 beats -a Half note lasting 2 beats -a Quarter note lasting 1 beat -an Eight note lasting 1/2 a beat South Indian Rhythmic Syllables: Adi Tala (Ta Ka Di Me) -Teach the syllables in relation to each beat breakdown of each bar to increases comprehension of beat relation. Example: x=clap _=held beat Beat Instrument 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 Hand drum x__ x x__ x x x x x x Triangle x__x__ x__x__ x x x x____x Tambourine x x x x x x x x x

Checking For Understanding:
 Create your very own 4 part rhythm focused piece for the percussion instrumentation of your choice! Then be able to preform your composition with your group. Or fuse all of the members of your groups creations for rhythmic mayhem!
 Now that we are almost finished the class, you can all read rhythms and determine note duration/ value. As well as being able to create your own rhythms, composing for four rhythmic parts and preform your compositions.
