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.
Goals:
    Learn or review tempo words
    Learn or review articulation terms
    Play for each other and listen for layers of musicality
Agenda:
  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.
