In this lesson, we will explore our vocal range with a stretching warm up. Then we will learn two songs to sing in canon.
Unit Overview: Harmony
In this lesson, we will use our vocal chords with a fun warm-up. Then we will explore everything about chords and harmony. Lastly, we will learn how to form a triad using our voice, and apply our knowledge to create a chordal accompaniment to the song 'Sunrise'.
In this lesson, we will warm up our bodies and voices with a song called 'Shabuya!'. We will explore Holst's 'Mars: Bringer of War' from The Planets Suite and discover why his music for this movement really did sound so ominous and menacing. We will then learn some of the ostinato patterns from this movement followed by doing some composition of our own.
In this lesson, we will learn a new four part song as a warm-up. Then we will explore the importance of the 'third' interval, and apply it to create a new part of our Zulu song.
In this lesson, we will sing one of four parts in 'Do your Dooty', listening to the harmonies as we sing. Following that, we will review our understanding of thirds and how they can help us harmonise. In order to understand harmony further, we will learn a new song based on the triad.
In this lesson, we will learn two key parts of a new warm-up song. Following that, we will learn a new spiritual - Ain't Gonna Let Nobody - a protest song about power and freedom, and we will take inspiration from the likes of Pachelbel to structure our own performance.
