What instruments do you hear?
How does this make you feel?
What is the tempo of this music? (fast or slow?)
What are the dynamics of this music? (loud or soft)
What is the pitch of the music? (high or low)
Did you like it? (explain your reason why?)
(Remember you don't have to like the same type of music as your friend)
The two main instruments played are the 'xylophone' and the 'tubulum'.
The tubulum is a homemade instruments and is made from plastic drain pipes.
It can also be known as a 'thongophone' - in Australia they use flip flops to play the instrument.
Have a listen to some other unusual homemade instruments. Discuss with your friends which ones are your favourites.
This week we are going to take a look at a brand new rhythm 'tiki-tiki'. This is the same rhythm pattern as 'ad-vo-ca-do' from Mr Rob's Sweet beets song last week.
On a white board divide your board into 8 spaces (shown below)
In each of these spaces you can write one of the rhythm symbols we have learnt over the past few weeks. It's time to create your very own 8 bar rhythm using 'ta', 'ti-ti', 'tiki-tiki' and 'rest'.
On your whiteboard, set out your 8 bars like this: Each of the boxes is known as a bar and inside each bar there can be only 1 beat.
You can include any of the rhythm symbols in any order. It is completely your choose - there is NO WRONG WAY of doing this activity.
This is my try at creating an 8 bar rhythm.
Practice your rhythm and clap it to your friends. Swap boards and have a go at your friends pattern.
How far can you get this week? Will you beat Miss Bliss?
