PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a set of two activity sheets, one for rhythm identification practice and the other for melodic dictation; both are modifiable.

Possible Uses:
• periodic rhythm and melody dictation - ear training
• focus on specific rhythms
• focus on specific sections of the staff
• tracking or testing purposes for portfolios

Optional Directions:
Magical Music Cube - Beginner Rhythm Dictation:
Prepare 5, one bar (4/4) rhythms using the rhythms that reflect your curriculum targets. Set the scene by reading the text description building on the ‘solving the mystery of what’s in the Magical Music Cube’. There is an extra blank version to write in new rhythms for progressive uses of this activity.

Climbing the Egyptian Pyramids - Beginner Ear Training:
Prepare 5, five note ear training entries for each sheet you use to match your curriculum targets. Example, using repeated notes, notes that move by step, and notes that jump or leap (interval of a third). Again, set the scene of describing a climb on the ancient pyramids of Egypt, and how, in some sections, you have to climb one block, or more dangerously, leap, or dangle by a rope to blocks out of your reach.

Treble clef, bass clef and blank versions included.

Tech Bit:

If your students have a tablet (iPad, for example) with an app that provides a piano keyboard, they could play the melody back after hearing it in echo fashion, instead of clapping, or both. This method would allow them to see the interval distances of each group of notes, especially good for visual learners. I like to introduce intervals with specific melodies that contain the specific interval, e.g., unison notes are played in the Star Wars - Darth Vader’s theme.
The drum set in GarageBand could be used to repeat or echo the rhythms.
