Product Description
This unit is one of my most popular lessons! There’s no better way to teach rhythmic concepts than through rap; and this unit gets the students rapping about one of their favorite things: pizza!
The unit comes with:
• Level 1 score: quarter and eighth notes, quarter rests and four instrument accompaniment
• Level 2 score: adds sixteenth notes to the rap
• Level 3 score: adds dotted rhythms to the rap and accompaniment
• Level 4 score: adds syncopation to the rap
• Alternate scores for each level with two or three instrument accompaniments
• Five mp3 recordings of drum rhythms to use as additional accompaniment
• Assessment 1: Composing rhythms in 3 or 4 (comes in levels 1 and 2)
• Assessment 2: Composing raps in specified rhythms (levels 1 and 2)
• Assessment 3: Identifying note values in relation to fractions (level 2)
• Assessment 4: Identifying the rhythms of phrases (levels 1 and 2)

The package also comes with a lesson guide with sample procedures.
Depending on the level you choose for your students, they will:
• Distinguish between rhythm and beat in music
• Read, write and perform rhythmic patterns using quarter notes and eighth notes
• Identify and perform rests in written notation
• Perform combinations of sixteenth notes and eighth notes in written notation
• Identify, describe, and perform dotted rhythms.
• Identify and work with syncopated rhythm patterns.
• Apply rhythms to songs and kinesthetic exercises.
• Apply their knowledge of various time signatures of duple and triple meter and use this information in reading familiar and unfamiliar music.
• Read and interpret a score
• Understand tempo and its affect on performance as well as aesthetics.
