Music Theory Guy

Imagen

Comparto estos recursos musicales en inglés por si os sirven para vuestras clases bilingües.
Se trata del canal de vídeo “Music Theory Guy” donde encontraréis una nutrida colección de lecciones de lenguaje musical y de otros temas interesantes como las series dodecafónicas, los modos, los acordes, etc.
Los vídeos podrían resultar muy práctico para aplicar la metodología Flipped Classroom basada en la visualización de lecciones, normalmente a través de vídeos, para después realizar actividades en el aula, aprovechando mejor el tiempo y dedicando más atención al trabajo del alumno durante la clase.

Los alumnos realizan sus propios CRUCIGRAMAS.

“Chuck Vanderchuck” vídeos musicales en inglés

Here are your instruments.

Image result for emoticon helloHello everyone!!

We‘ve definitely finish the theme of the families of instruments, different instruments and symphony orchestra.

Your final work consisted in building your own instrument with recyclable materials.


You could choose the one you want with two conditions, which will use such material and obviously sound.

We left a week of time for you to think what to build, what materials and how sound and the results have been excellent, really.

It was a big surprise for me but overall hear you say that you have learned a lot from the oral presentations of the families of instruments and then preparing your individual presentation of your instrument to other colleagues.

Now you can enjoy these videos that I have prepared for you to have a great memory of this great theme you have worked very good.

In the first two videos you can watch your buildings and thirdly a tour of the classroom to see them all together.

And of course in the following video are your classmates apart submitting your instrument is sounded.

Using your mobile phone to Compose

It was the first time we have used mobiles phone  in class and think we will continue with more Apps.

We have been working with two programas.Android:Music composition and Apple: iwritemusic-free.

With these applications we have learned how to  write basic melodies with and without chords, using various alterations, beats, rhythms

At the same time we heard what we were writing at the time to listen alone or show it to classmates.

Finally we had several options, save scores created, export as images or as midi.

It has been a fantastic experience for me and for the students because we have learned and shared together.

Here you have a video with images of this new experience.
