Welcome to Music & Movement at SVLC...

The SVLC Music & Movement Classes incorporate an aural emphasis in music learning through movement and thoughtful participation. We started the school year with learning and reviewing the basic music elements using simple rhythm and tonal patterns and corresponding syllables. We learned some simple dances and played musically with scarves, finger plays, and pitched and unpitched percussion instruments.

In November, the older children played an accompaniment on the resonator bars, and learned a two-part Thanksgiving poem. Each little musician is doing so well learning to keep a steady beat and match pitch! We are working matching pitch, echoing tonal and rhythm patterns and building our ensemble skills.

TONAL & RHYTHM PATTERNS
     A few minutes of every class is spent with Mrs. Lyn chanting short rhythm patterns and singing short tonal patterns. As the children mature, they may begin to echo the patterns, and later, they will “answer” with a different pattern (something that is slightly different than the original pattern but one that is in the same key or meter as the original pattern).

Tonal and rhythm patterns can be thought of as the “building blocks” of music, just as words are to language. With our children we spend time saying and repeating single words as they are learning language, we should also spend time singing and chanting tonal and rhythm patterns to children as they are learning music. We are laying the aural foundation for their musical growth, and  chanting and singing patterns facilitates an understanding of meter and tonality. This process lays the groundwork for understanding musical notation.
