Concert Preparation

Grade: 3

Goal: To give students the experience of preparing for a concert by singing and playing accompaniment
along with an instrumental recording. This is important because it develops aural skills to differentiate
between melodies and accompaniments.

Objectives with NJ Standards: (1) Students will be able to demonstrate correct playing techniques for
Orff instruments, 1.3.2.B.3. (2) Students will be able to demonstrate the basic concepts of meter, rhythm,
tonality, intervals, and differentiate basic structures, 1.1.5.B.2.

Materials: Xylophones and mallets, boom-whackers, Lead Sheets, karaoke recordings for Wooly Bully,
Louie, Louie, and Joy to the World, possible rhythm instruments (woodblock, triangle), white board
and markers.

Teaching Process:
Agenda of class plans will be printed on the board.
Students with specified modifications will be given unlimited response time.
Xylophones will be set up before students enter the room.
Boys and girls, I loved that we were able to run through all of our concert music last week. Do you
think we can be even more productive today?
Students assigned to play instruments for Wooly Bully, will take their places by the xylophones.
Run-through Wooly Bully with xylophones and boom-whackers. Possibly add one student to
play a rhythm instrument (woodblock or claves)
Boys and girls, lets go over the lyrics for Louie, Louie, with only the accompaniment track, no
instruments for now. I want to make sure that we are all familiar with how the lyrics fit into the
melody.
Sing-through Louie, Louie, as a class 10 minutes
o Echo line by line, then sing whole verses, then all together with track.
Third grade, were going to try something new to help us work out the details of each song. We will
be dividing into smaller groups, and one group will work on Louie, Louie, on this side of the room,
and the other group will work on Joy to the World.
Divide into small groups for Louie, Louie, and Joy to the World, to work out the details of the
pieces. Mrs. Struble and Ms. G will be rotating between the groups to facilitate learning and to go
over specific techniques in using mallets and where to strike the xylophones for the best sound.
o Louie, Louie: 6 instrumentalists, 5 singers
o Joy to the World: 5 instrumentalists, 5 singers
Sing-through Finale, song.
If time allows:
o Run-through Louie, Louie, as a class with instruments and track.
o Run-through Joy to the World, as a class with instruments and track.

Assessment Criteria: (1) Are students able to demonstrate correct playing techniques on the
xylophones? (2) Are students able to demonstrate the basic concepts of rhythm and tonality through the
music?
