“Join your favorite animated characters led by the famous Luigi’s Baton and his side-kick Mike the Microphone, as they introduce young music students to the ‘FUN’damentals of music, with emphasis on the fun! With the help of their friends Cadence the Drummer and Fret the Guitar, children will love learning about beat, rhythm, tempo, melody and so much more.”
This video series (with lesson plan guides included) is a resource that we feel will be useful for reinforcing concepts which you have introduced to your students. Intended for introducing/practicing elements such as steady beat, rhythm, and high/low, lessons include objectives, materials, vocabulary, suggested lessons, and assessments, making this accessible for you and your students. This would also be a helpful resource if you have a substitute teacher who is a musician as well.
The following are included in this all-in-one format:
– Full color digital lessons with embedded video episodes for instant viewing
– Projectable and reproducible song charts with lyrics and embedded audio
– Activity visuals to reinforce music concepts
– Quality lesson plans
All of the projectable content is included via digital access and viewed in your browser, so there is no need for special software. Just download the files onto your computer and you’re ready to go! Performance and accompaniment audio recordings are also available in a separate folder via download for performance options.
Songs include: The Beat Is the Heart of Music; I’ve Got Rhythm, How ‘Bout You? Take a Rest; We’re Gonna Sing High, Low and in the Middle; Presto Is Fast, Largo Is Slow; Lines and Spaces Baby! Suggested for grades 1-3.
