Used with my upper middle school students, this unit teaches basic music theory including all the steps necessary for major scale construction and I,IV, V chord construction.
Once you've walked your class through these basics put their knowledge to work as they follow my step-by-step guide for writing their first song with a melody line and I, IV, V chords in the bass line as accompaniment. (We use the free version of Finale Notepad for composition but you can use whatever program you have available to you.)
Not only will students learn tons of basic theory with these materials, they'll be able to walk away from this unit feeling accomplished as composers!
A theory quiz and test are included with full keys. A rubric is included for grading compositions.
66 PAGES TOTAL!
-Teacher Key Booklet
-Teaching Power Point
-Quiz and Test with Key
-Step By Step Composition Guide
I hope your students are inspired and empowered musicians with this awesome unit bundle!
