♫ This worksheet is appropriate for band, chorus or orchestra, and will work well for middle and high school ensembles.
♫ Good for a substitute teacher.
♫ Teaching intonation is tricky, as it is an advanced skill and a somewhat difficult concept for young musicians to grasp.
♫ Intonation occurs on every scoring rubric for performances, and our students need to understand what it is before they get on the stage to perform.
♫ I have been pondering this worksheet for a long time, and hope it will help you in your endeavor to teach intonation.

Let this worksheet teach this lesson for you! Have your students read and answer the questions to teach the lesson. Use my “teach it with a worksheet” class completion method. I suggest having your students complete the worksheet together as a class. Call on different students at random to read the questions, then use my "legal blurt out" system. Tell your students if they know the answer, to say it out loud. Then everyone fills in the blank. Then, all students turn in their papers, and everyone gets 100% for completing the worksheet. This makes grading so much easier for you, and makes your students very happy. (If you wish to hold them individually accountable, use this later as a quiz. Ask yourself if you need to spend a lot of personal time grading papers.) What you care about is them understanding and executing the concept when you say, for example, "Use staggered breathing.” Etc. (To enter the grades in the computer, have your students line up at your desk, and one by one, check their paper and enter their grade. This gives you “one on one” time with each student and gives him or her a five minute social break.)
