Pumpkin Party for My Older Students

  MFPA students should not have all the fun, so I am having Pumpkin Parties for the older students as well. This will be the first time I have a group together to talk about My Layers of Musicality theme.
We need to discuss if these layers can be more prevalent in our performances. So here is the agenda.
    Learn or review tempo words
    Learn or review articulation terms
    Play for each other and listen for layers of musicality
  1.Learn one phrase of Joy To The World with added layers. See worksheet. Click on Resources and look for Layers of Musicality worksheet.
  2.Take turns choosing tempo words out of a pumpkin. Play a small section at that tempo.
  3. Play Halloween Composing Game, made by Wendy Chan.
  4. Each student plays a current piece and we all listen for layers of musicality.
  5. Share a cookie time.
Invited: 4-5 students on similar skill levels. I do one group lesson a week right into Nov. This replaces their regular lesson.
