I can describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place
Over the past 7 weeks I have been learning to describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place
I can describe these characteristics in a piece of music…
Melody: Musical notes/sound in an agreeable succession or arrangement. (The bit that gets stuck in your head.)
Harmony:Musical notes or sounds played together at the same time. Major harmony-happy song, fast tempo. Minor harmony-sad song, slow tempo.
Rhythm:A repeated pattern of sounds or notes.
Timbre:The quality of a musical note, sound or tone.
Form: The type of composition or structure in a song.
Here is an example of my learning.
