Interactive Site for Learning Music

http://interactivesites.weebly.com/music-fun.html Added: 06 May 2016 Contributor: Scoilnet Resource type: Simulation

Music to our ears! A collection of engaging music animations which students can interact with. Watch your class become activated with the power of the move-mixer where students will need to follow the dance moves as you quicken up the speed/ change the music. Holistically, students can decide how music makes them feel from relaxed to grumpy.
If your more of a hands on instrumental musician, discover how different instruments sound. Perhaps, your more of a modern day age Beethoven, so why not learn to play the piano digitally engaging with chords, scales and notes. Then see can you transfer your digital Beethoven skills to your real life piano.

Even more ambitious; Generate a class choir with hands symphony or join a jazz band?

Strand: Listening & Responding

Strand unit: Listening and responding to music

Content objective:
This resource should enable a child to:

  • distinguish the main instrument heard in a piece of music
  • examine the effects produced by different instruments
  • identify families of instruments
  • recognise strong and weak-beat patterns, illustrating them through gestures

Suggestions for use: Introduce the "Guess my instrument" animation to test students prior knowledge in relation to musical instruments. Play the music. Get students to do different movements to represent their chosen answers so that you can quickly identify all students understanding.

Next activity can link onto listening to instruments being combined This can be facilitated by using the "Quincy and the magic instruments" animation. Ask students to think-pair-share; What instruments have you seen played together? Which is your favorite?

Print out pictures of each instrument. Tell the students that you want them to sort out the orchestra storage room so that the musicians can easily get their instruments. Allow students to discuss how they will categorize the instruments. Go around the room asking students to explain why they are putting them in their particular order. Bring the class back together to reflect on their collaboration. Use the last animation on this website, to explain how the conductor would organize his instructions into; bass, strings, woodwind and percussion. Also, emphasis the location of these instruments within an orchestra using the orchestra seating.

Homework: Ask students to visit this website and create a poster including details on a chosen type of instrument using the orchestra animation. Demonstrate how and where they can access this research material before the class ends.
