This lesson covers four main concepts: beat, rhythm, tempo, and dynamics.
The can help your students to learn beat vs rhythm as well as follow along on the listening map!
The slides also include definitions for common musical vocabulary including beat, rhythm, theme, coda, tempo, dynamics and incidental music. Choose from slow/fast or largo/presto and soft/loud vs piano/forte.
My favorite part about these resource is how naturally students take to the concepts after seeing them animated before their eyes! I especially love the animated listening map. This is often such an abstract concept to students; the animations make it concrete!
