Teach “Come and Sing”

Students should read the rhythms of the song using rhythm names. The melody uses the notes of the C scale, so it is a good melody to read in solfa or letter names.

This is a four-part round. Be sure the students can sing the melody well in unison before trying it in parts. The first time you try having them sing in parts, have all the class sing the round in unison, while you sing the second part. If the class is successful, divide them into two groups. Have each group sing the round twice, with the second group beginning after measure two. When they are successful at this, try the round in three parts (as recorded) and then in four parts.

Try playing the round on barred instruments or recorders. Change the instruments that you use for each part of the round. Decide which combination of instruments you like the best.

Divide the students into small groups and have each group create a movement for one measure. Then, have groups choose movements for each measure of the song. Perform the song as a movement canon while you sing.

Song Used: Clementine

Teach “Clementine”

This is a miner’s song that became popular during the California gold rush. Teach the song by rote if it is not familiar to your students.

This song gives the students more practice singing in 3/4 meter. If you wish to teach the dotted eighth-sixteenth note rhythm, this would be a good song to use.
