Review “I am Getting Such a Headache”

Copy Link
Song Used: I Am Getting Such a Headache

Review “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.

Review the actions for “I am Getting Such a Headache”
