This lesson is designed to allow your children an opportunity to experience mixed meter (specifically 7/8 meter grouped in 3+2+2) with two contrasting motion sections. The original music is composed in Ionian mode (not major mode), so any accompaniment pattern based around the C/G drone will support the melody nicely. Improvisation in this mode should use the C pentatonic scale and include F's and B's as passing tones (as in the melody) on weak beats. The melody is scored for soprano recorder to emphasize the feeling of light motion in the A section, however, it can also be played on the soprano xylophone.

The piece has many extension possibilities that are detailed at the end of the lesson plan. There is a very easy ELA connection if you decide to either set a poem to this melody or to compose new lyrics.

All 7's is also a great piece to work on recorder technique because of the range and also repeated and sequenced rhythms. Extending the piece in any of the ways detailed in the lesson plan will make All 7's a great mixed meter piece to add to any concert. As with the Schulwerk process, please encourage your children to explore improvisation and movement to increase their understanding of these concepts. Also, all of the accompaniment parts and orchestration are just a suggestion, it is encouraged that you modify them to meet your students' needs. The included PowerPoint will guide your students easily through this lesson.

My Orff Ensemble loved learning this piece and I hope that your children will, too!
