Activity for May 20th-21st, 2020

Activity for May 20th-21st, 2020: 

A spectrogram is a picture of sound. A spectrogram shows the frequencies that make up the sound, from low to high, and how they change over time, from left to right.

Using the Chrome Music Lab Spectrogram feature, explore how various sounds create different frequencies! On the bottom, you can select different sounds and watch their frequencies. You can also record your voice and watch your own frequencies!

You will need to watch the Harp, Trombone, Birds and Modem. You will need to describe how these frequencies looked by answering the questions. After exploring these 4, pick at least 1 other sound to explore. You can answer these questions on a separate piece of paper or print out this one!

Review reading rhythms! You will need your recorder, or if you don’t have your recorder you can use any instrument you have. You can also clap and say these rhythms using “Ta” for quarter notes and “titi” for eighth notes.

After reviewing the rhythms, answer the reflection questions on a separate piece of paper.

Activity for May 6th-7th, 2020:

Music is something that everyone can enjoy in their own way! Some people play instruments, some people sing, some people dance, some people like to just listen, and some like to do all of it! Regardless of what you do, music is for everyone!

Conduct a musical interview with at least 1 member of your family this week about how they enjoy music. You can record their answers to the questions on a separate piece of paper. If you think of more questions to ask them about music, I would love to know what you came up with!
