Recorder Karate Tassel Songs

Dear Students,

These are the songs we use for Recorder Karate Tassels! There are several new notes, so look at the fingering chart on the Prescott Workshop website to learn new fingerings: http://www.prescottworkshop.com/bar_finger_c.pdf     While you’re there, look at the recorders they sell. Have you ever seen a $2000 recorder?!!!

As you learn these challenging songs, remember to keep a steady beat. Start by learning each phrase slowly, then work up to performance tempo.

Good luck!

Recorder Karate 1 Aura Lee White Tassel

Recorder Karate 2 Nonsense Song Yellow Tassel

Recorder Karate 3 Rooster Round Orange Tassel

Recorder Karate 4 Song of the Donkey Green Tassel

Recorder Karate 5 Scarborough Fair Purple Tassel

Recorder Karate 6 Blue Tassel Jingle Bells

Talent Showcase 2020!

Dear Eastvalley Students,

Our Talent Showcase scheduled for May 8th is still on! We will be hosting the Talent Showcase on FlipGrid so every student who wants to perform will have an audience. We won’t hold auditions, but all entries will be reviewed before we post them for all of Eastvalley to see.

For student privacy, you’ll need a special free (and secret) code to watch the performances, and we’ll provide that via email on May 8th. You may share the code with friends and family, but NOT on social media. We only want this Virtual Talent Showcase viewed by people with connections to Eastvalley. You may post your own child’s performance to social media if you choose.

Mr. Foster will email the Flipgrid password through Blackboard for students to access the Flipgrid to make their recordings.

Step 1. Students go to this website and put in the password from Mr. Foster:  https://flipgrid.com/509d6fb9

Step 2. Click the big green plus sign (+) and the website will ask students to “log in to record” with Google or Microsoft. Choose Microsoft and log in with your child’s Eastvalley login.

STUDENT LOGIN EXAMPLE: firstname.lastname@students.cobbk12.org

PASSWORD: same password used for school computers (not the Flipgrid password used in the first step)

Step 3. Prerecord and upload your video.

Most of our usual Talent Showcase rules apply, so see this post for suggestions: http://www.cobblearning.net/drbernard/2020/03/03/talent-showcase-2020-auditions/

Since this is an unusual situation, there are a couple of rules that we are setting aside this year.

  1. You may perform with any and/or all your family members if you choose, and anyone who is Social Distancing with you.
  2. If you are singing, you may sing along with any appropriate music (not just a Karaoke style soundtrack) if you choose.
  3. You may prerecord your performance (and even add special effects) before you upload it to FlipGrid.

 

We want this to be a fun experience for everyone. Check back here for the link to begin uploading your performances on May 1st.

Start practicing your talent and we look forward to seeing your performance!

Email me if you have questions.

Best wishes for a happy week.

 

Steps to Composing a Song on a Keyboard

Keyboard Composition: I can compose a song!

How do I create and compose a song?

Strand: Creative Expression and Communication

 We’re going to compose Pentatonic (Octatonic for extension/differentiation) patterns on the keyboards

 

Word Wall time!

 Pentatonic        Octatonic          Rondo form      Composer

 Instrumental    Lyrics       Tempo      Rhythm     Melody

 Pitch         Ostinato         Vocal   

  

Dr. Bernard’s Steps to Writing a Song

  1. Decide on a subject (ex: Within Reach)
  2. Do you want instrumental, vocal or both?
  3. a. If vocal first write the lyrics (words) or pick a text to set to music (a poem or a line of a story) .                            b. If instrumental, skip to step 5
  4. Determine the tempo and rhythm of your words (Say the words out loud. How would you speak them to a friend? While giving a speech? How fast did you speak them to get your meaning across? Which words are longer sounds and which are shorter?)
  5. Determine where you want the pitch of the melody to go higher or lower (up or down). When you say your words, where does the pitch naturally go up and down?
  6. What instrument sounds would help convey your meaning?
  7. Practice it
  8. Record it!

 Self assessment for 4th and 5th grade students:

  • Does my composition have a Rondo ABACA Coda form?
  • Does my song have an ostinato (repeated pattern) for each section (ABACA Coda)?
  • Does my song use a Pentatonic or an Octatonic scale pattern for the melody?

 

After you get rich and famous, please remember to donate lots of money to Eastvalley’s music department. 🙂

Free Zoom Voice Lessons from Wheeler Student

This message is from Rithu Hegde, a magnet student at Wheeler High School:

I am very passionate and experienced in music and I know a lot of kids are bored and stuck at home. 

I want to sing and play instruments for them and teach them simple songs or songs of their interest through Zoom sessions. Please let me know if you have any kids interested in this!

Just to let you know, I am an All-State singer and have earned over 60k streams on songs I have composed, produced, sung, and released.

Thank you,

“Beginning musicians should start in the Notes room.  After they read the material, encourage them to take the   Quizzes to test their understanding of the treble clef notes.   Once the musician has passed the quizzes, they may want to explore the Rhythms page.  Next, be sure to look at the information on the Recorder  page, and of course, take the Fingering                  Quizzes.  Just before looking at the Songbook,   the students should read through the Practicing  guide.  Once these things have been done, the student is prepared to play the Beginning Level I songs in the Songbook.

The Talent Showcase auditions are April 15-16, 2020! The public performance is Friday, May 8th at 6:30 PM!

Tickets to the performance cost $4 for adults and $3 for Students & Senior Citizens over 65 at the door.

Ticket proceeds go toward the purchase and maintenance of our Eastvalley stage and performance equipment such as curtains, sound system, lighting and related supplies. None of the judges, staff members, or parents who help with the talent showcase are paid for their time or services. We all volunteer to make this experience happen for the kids!

You must audition if you want to be in the showcase. If you are selected to perform in the Talent Showcase, you have two required rehearsals: Monday April 27, and May 4 from 2:45-4:30. If you are only performing in the group finale, you will be finished with rehearsal by 3:15 each rehearsal day. Download the permission slip: TALENT SHOWCASE 2020 permission

If you have a talent, we want to see it!

Who will be the next Eastvalley Star?

It will take a lot of practice, so START NOW!

Order your music! Get your costume and props!

Reserve a time on the sheet outside the music room door in April and attend the audition on either April 15th or 16th after school.

WE WANT YOU TO TRY OUT!

We would like a wide variety of acts of all ages K-5, including vocalists, instrumentalists, gymnasts, dancers, comedians, puppets, magicians, actors, etc.  (No lip sync, please.)

 The Talent Showcase is Friday, May 8th at 6:30 PM!

 If you are selected to perform in the Talent Showcase, you will have two required rehearsals: Monday April 27, and Thursday May 4 from 2:45-4:30. 

 REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATION (what I need to do to get in):

  • Reserve a time on the sheet outside the music room door in April and audition on either April 15th or 16th after school. Try-outs are limited to approximately the first 24 acts to sign up. You must be picked up by 15 minutes after your try-out and after rehearsals or you will be sent to the After School Program (ASP) and charged accordingly. (Your child must be registered for ASP and have paid the $10 registration fee if you plan to use this service).
  • Perform your whole act at the audition (3-4 minutes maximum) in costume at the audition. You will have two minutes to set up/ take down your materials. If using a soundtrack/music, you must use it during the audition. No excuses. No saying, “it’s on order.” Get it now.
  • Perform your whole act in costume at both rehearsals in the cafeteria. Attendance AT ALL REHEARSALS is required. If you miss a rehearsal, you will not be in the showcase. All group members must attend all rehearsals.
  • If using a soundtrack to sing/ perform with, it must not have the solo vocal/ instrument on it (no lip syncing or singing along with the voice on the recording). IE: you must use a Karaoke style recording without the solo voice part. You must use it during the audition. No excuses. No saying, “it’s on order.” Get it now. Music needs to be an audio file, not a video file.
  • The performance must be in good taste, have audience appeal, and show a genuine talent (ex: just standing on stage and reading a book doesn’t have much audience appeal). The faculty sponsors will determine audience appeal and appropriateness. See the rubric below.
  • Students must provide their own costumes, recordings and equipment for the audition and performance. The school will furnish a cd player, flash drive player, a piano, and three stand microphones on the stage.
  • Only about 20 or fewer “featured acts” will be selected to perform their act in the talent showcase. Other students who try out but are not selected as a “featured act” may participate in the large-group finale.
  • Only current Eastvalley students (K-5) are eligible to participate—parents/teachers/coaches may assist but no students from other schools.
  • The sponsors may add other rules or restrictions as deemed necessary.    

SCORING RUBRIC: During the audition, the acts will be scored as follows.
