Grade 7 Music
This class has a continuous focus on listening. Students are walked through structured listening exercises relating to form, range, meter, patterns, harmony, color, social implications, and emotional effect. These exercises use American, Western Classical, and music from around the world.
By the end of the course, students are also taught to read notes in three clefs and count out rhythms containing sixteenth notes in 4/4 and 6/8 time signatures. If there is time at the end of the quarter, the class may complete a basic snare drumming unit.
