Music Notation ‘Dinah’

Grade 4 has started writing music! We played the game, ‘Dinah’ until we knew the song really well. Then we identified the beat and the rhythm, and practised being able to perform both. Next, we figured out how many beats were in the song and how many sounds were on each beat. We sang the song in rhythm syllables (ta, ti-ti, tika tika, sa) and now we are learning how to represent these sounds with symbols!img_1405 img_1407
