Lesson 18

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

Link to Lesson 1 of S-Cubed! Forbidden Pattern


It’s called MILESTONE because it is a BIG one in the process of teaching our young upper elementary and middle school beginners how to sight sing. I developed this method because most of the books and methods I found started where this lesson picks up, and my students failed miserably.

Instead, with S-Cubed, we have set down a solid foundation for our students.

Because we haven’t skipped any steps in our teaching process, our students are ready to tackle the big advances offered in this lesson! By methodically building the skill sets they need to succeed, I have no doubt that your students will meet the challenge offered in this important lesson in the S-Cubed Sight Singing series!

In this 4 day, 10-15 minute per day lesson:

*On the third day, they take the BIG step: Your students will perform a sight singing example that includes skips and steps combined with challenging rhythms.
*Teachers will assess their ability to accurately name the notes using “Do, Re, Mi, etc.” using only the key signature to help them.
*We will awaken the students to the importance of developing speed in their ability to identify note names using solfeggi
*We will continue using Chromatics to refine their ears.

The lessons follow the normal daily lesson procedure outlined in the three freebies in the S-Cubed program. Please check those out! (Written/Oral warm up; Group Rhythm Practice; Forbidden Pattern; Follow the Hand; Sight Singing Example).

In this lesson, you will get:
*One Sight Singing example
*Two 2-part Group Rhythm exercises
*Guidance on the game Forbidden Pattern and lots of help for this all important Sight Singing example.
*“Follow the hand” is a critical component of this lesson and there is lots of guidance to help you use it effectively to encourage success on Day 3. This lesson is all about helping our students successfully sing the Sight Singing example on that day.
*Individual YouTube links for each day of the lesson with short 2-3 minutes of guidance and teaching tips geared specifically to the lesson of the day.
*YouTube links showing Mr D actually teaching the lesson to his students so you can get ideas about how to deliver the material.
