Year 7 Ukulele program
This Year 7 Ukulele program provides students with a detailed introduction to the concepts of music (focusing on duration) and allows them to broaden their existing understandings of each of these concepts.
Through listening and performing activities students will learn about the main aspects of the concepts of duration ? beat, tempo, metre, time signature and rhythm and will explore the ways in which composers manipulate these concepts for particular purposes. Students will begin to learn to analyse music and will write extended responses discussing the use of duration in musical examples from a range of genres, styles and historical time periods. Students will play increasingly difficult pieces of music from notation and undertake performance activities focusing on developing their skills on the ukulele which will synthesise their theoretical and notational understandings and skills.
