INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
This is set up with a pulse on the 8th note because the focus is on preparing the tam-ti. Each pulse is represented by a clock and the sound is represented by a soldier. The tam-ti is seen in the last 4 pulses of the 1st, 2nd, and 4th lines. Tap between the 5th and 6th pulse and a box will light up to show the long sound. The listening music is in the green triangle in a corner of the page. Tap the little speaker.
This shows the pulses grouped into beats. Tap on a soldier and green rhythmic notation will show up. Tap between the 5th and 6th pulse and a box will light up, again, to show the long sound. Notice, there are places where the rhythm within the beat should be ti-tika or tika-ti. Students will have to draw the lines to fix this. The listening music is in the green triangle in a corner of the page. Tap the little speaker.
This shows traditional notation. Notice the ties. Tap on them and the long-short sound will be shown. Tap under their beat boxes and the 2 beats involved will be highlighted. Again, the music is in the green triangle.
Now we have Practice notation. The tam-ti is highlighted when you tap below the beat boxes.
This contains the melody for the A section. It is written in Eb, so as to be sung with the recording. HOWEVER, you may drag the entire set of pitches up or down on the staff, transposing to suit your students.
Students will complete the written music by dragging the pitches to the correct locations.
Instruments page. This includes Bass Drum, Triangle, Small Drum, Sticks. The music is included here, so the students may play with the orchestra. The sticks have the Tam-ti to play. It is a green long-short. Tap it and the traditional notation will appear.
This piece is a rondo. The music, again, is included. Students will listen, tap and drag to discover the letters we give to a rondo form and understand what it is.
