ELEMENTS OF MUSIC A FURTHER LOOK INTO HOW MUSIC WORKS BELL RINGER: Place backpacks under tables and bring class materials to chairs. List the 8 elements of music we learned about at the beginning of the year. Can you define all of them?

VOCABULARY LIST The first 8 words you should already know. You are responsible for learning the definitions and correct spellings of all the terms listed. We will have a quiz next Wednesday 11/18 on these. HEARING DISSONANT AND CONSONANT These two types of sounds work together to create a harmonic narrative.

Too many consonant (stable) sounds make a song shallow. Too many dissonant (unstable) sounds can lose or irritate listeners. Great music mixes the two together and alternates them back and forth. Listen to this example- When you hear a dissonant or unpleasant sound raise your hand.

ARTICULATION This is the diction of music performance. In order to contrast with one another, performers must be creative and have a variety or ways to start and end notes. If you were acting in a play, how would you create these impressions for the audience in the voice of your character? How would you create these musical illusions using articulations? Power, grace, momentum, shocking, stable, mysterious

Lets listen to a range of articulations. PHRASING Phrasing is the shaping and grouping of notes into coherent ideas. Everyone can hear music and recognize

great melodies, but fewer listeners can hear detailed phrasing created by the performer. Classical musicians record the same pieces by Mozart and others and create a unique performance through phrasing. PHRASING Music v. writing Articulation v. word

Phrase v. Sentence or paragraph Song/movement v. Chapter Album/symphony/set list v. novel LISTENING COMPARISON Compare the articulation and phrasing of these famous cello players all interpreting Bachs Cello Suite No. 1 Yo-Yo Ma Mstislav Rostapovich Mischa Maisky

HARMONY When 3 or more notes sound simultaneously, they are called a chord. There are many types of complex chords, but the 5 primary ones are Major- bright, happy, resolved, stable, triumphant, peaceful

Lets listen: Can you hear the chord qualities changing in the example? Minor- dark, sad, emotional, melancholy, defeated Dominant- moving, aggressive, unstable, waiting, urgent Diminished- troubled, dangerous, looming, urgent Augmented- mysterious, spacey, angst, unnatural CHORD PROGRESSIONS Think of melodies as characters in our mind and harmony/chord

progressions as the tools that set the mood and light the stage. Without harmony, melodies seem alone. Without melodies, chord progressions can push the listener into a personal or introspective mood driven by the chords. Listen to this chord progression, does the chord progression, does it change your mood? GOOD MORNING! Place all backpacks/bags under tables and bring class

materials to your chair. Turn in your written vocabulary homework BEFORE THE BELL RINGS. Please take a crossword puzzle and begin to work on this for the first 10 minutes of class. You may use your vocab list, but see what you can do on your own! Please also take a fill-in-the-blank worksheet, we will complete this later in class.

PITCH Pitch is a very important concept in music to understand. Listen to the reading and fill-in-the-blanks on your pitch worksheet. Take-Aways What does pitch describe? What is usually the most important pitch or

note?

Bring necessary class items to your seat and place backpacks and purses under the tables. Take out your Current Events assignment. We will share these at the beginning of class. LISTENING Listen to the excerpt and write a short story based on what you hear, using the following prompt.

Note value how long to hold out a note RHYTHM: NOTE VALUES Whole note = 4 beats Half note = 2 beats Quarter note = 1 beat Eighth note = beat Sixteenth note = beat Thirty-second note = 1/8 beat RHYTHM MATH

Quarter note + quarter note = 2 beats What note value is 2 beats? Half note + half note = 4 beats What note value is 4 beats?
