Lesson 21

Product Description
This program is cumulative in nature. For best results, start with Lesson 1.

Link to Lesson 1 of S-Cubed! Forbidden Pattern


Congratulations to you for making it to Lesson 21! We have almost arrived to our destination of teaching our young singers how to sight singing 2-part exercises that include dotted-quarter eighth note combinations and very difficult skips.

Cross-Curricular work is always a good idea, so we are taking our students to MATH CLASS in order to reenforce the knowledge of note values, and to help our young singers avoid confusing quarter notes with singular eighth notes as we make final preparations for our students to read dotted-quarter eighth note combinations.

We will work on increasing their comfort level with the “RE, FA, LA” tool, and we will work toward helping them find the correct pitch for the more difficult intervals included in the “RE, FA, LA” tool.

In this three day lesson, you will receive:

3 Sight Singing examples that include singular eighth notes.
3 Group Rhythm Exercises in 2-parts during which you emphasize performing with balance as well as continuing to help your students learn to see some short cuts that will help them avoid mistakes when performing in 2-parts.
You will get 3 Written/Oral Warm ups focused on note values.
As always, you will get links to videos that include teaching tips for each daily lesson to give you some ideas on how to present the material.
In addition, you will get video links to Mr. D teaching many of the lessons to his own beginners in real time in a real public school classroom.

The lessons follow the normal daily lesson procedure outlined in the three freebies in the S-Cubed program (except on Day 1). Please check those freebies out if you haven’t done so already! (Written/Oral warm up; Group Rhythm Practice; Forbidden Pattern; Follow the Hand; Sight Singing Example).

Your students will stop moaning when you pull out the Sight Singing materials with S-Cubed! It is the 21st century way to improve how you teach Sight Singing. It is carefully progressive in sequence in a manner that encourages and increases the chances of success for your Upper Elementary and Middle School students each and every day. The daily success helps them to be more likely to enjoy the process of learning to Sight Sing.

The method is developed by a real teacher in a real classroom. S-Cubed is like a teacher workshop that includes lesson plans and lesson guidance by a teacher who is using it in his classroom everyday. These are real materials that are used in my classroom daily.

S-Cubed is the perfect system to use in the Chorus or General Music Classroom with inexperienced students. They will love “beating the page”!

One successful step at a time…The S-Cubed way! Start with Lesson 1 today, and with consistent implementation, your young students will be Sight Singing a capella in two parts with difficult rhythms and steps/skips combined in a matter of months just like the students in the video links.

It’s real. It’s proven. It works....the 21st Century Way!
