Product Description

"Pentatonic Sonic" asks students to use a MIDI controller to create an 8-measure melody using the pentatonic scale. Students will learn about the pentatonic scale and how it is used in modern American music as well as various folk music around the world.

********************

The "MIDI Series" projects focus on one musical element at a time. Each project will take 1-3 class periods, depending largely on student motivation and experience. Even though this series was intended to be completed using a program such as GarageBand or Logic Pro, the projects can be easily customized for GarageBand for iOS or online websites such as Soundtrap.

********************

Band, Orchestra, Choir, and General Music classes with access to technology will find these short projects to be a great way to fill in some time after a concert or in between units.

********************

Each project includes an essential question, musical terms, student discussion and procedures, minimal student instructions, an extension activity, and helpful screenshots to spur student curiosity and creativity.

********************

Note: This is not a comprehensive lesson plan. It is understood that teachers may need to seek out additional resources if they do not know the meaning of certain musical terms or how to perform various technical skills using music software.
