Teach “Haida”

Copy Link
Song Used: Haida

Teach “Haida”

Listen to “Haida” and ask students to give a thumbs up when they hear an accelerando in the music, and a thumbs down when they hear a ritardando. Teach the song by rote and sing the song in unison. Later when the song is known well, have the students sing this as a two-part round or a partner song. Part one is the first four measures. Part two is the last four measures.

The tempo changes in Haida. When the tempo speeds up it is called accelerando or accel. When the tempo slows down it is called ritardando or rit.

Although the melody of the song should be taught by rote, the students should be able to read the rhythms in the piece. This will provide good practice reading ti ta ti and ti-tika rhythms.

Song Used: I Am Getting Such a Headache

Teach “I am Getting Such a Headache”

Read the rhythms and the letter names for “I Am Getting Such a Headache”. Sing the song in unison, doubling the speed after each repetition. There is a “fill” in the accompaniment between repetitions. Later, divide the class into three groups and sing it in three parts - a slow group, a medium group (twice the speed), and a fast group (twice the speed of group two).

Add a second part by singing the song twice as fast. When you shorten the note values like this, it is called diminution. Try adding a third part by singing the song half the speed. When you lengthen the note values like this, it is called augmentation.
