Product Description
These are a collection of 6 basic chord progressions in G major, using chords I, IV, V, and I written for any similar treble clef instruments (e.g., recorders, xylophones, marimbas). There is an added percussion line with 3 instruments, e.g., bass drum, snare drum, and triangle. These can be modified.

Collaboration - Students can work in groups of 5 to prepare their accompaniment presented on each page, then write a melody that fits over top. Students can use the provided chord staff to see their available notes (for strict chord-based melody writing), or add passing notes to liven their melody. Students could perform a mini concert of each of the 6 pieces, each different, and played with a variety of tempo, expression and style.

All six pieces are presented each on its own page, followed by groupings of 2 per page on the last three pages of this package for convenience.

Music theory topics this activity introduces, or reinforces:
chord progression and structure
patterning
loop creation
rhythm creation
melody writing
wind instrument tonguing articulations
use of chords with added 7th (dominant 7th)
ensemble - small group skills

Tech Bit:
Students create loops using GarageBand, or other apps and save their loops for other projects, and to share. Loops could be instrument or drum based. Using any digital audio workstation (DAW) for mobile device or computer, students could record any of the tracks for further development, e.g., MIDI.
