Students have researched and discovered what melody and accompaniment are and how to use them in music. Recently the classes began learning the melody and accompanying parts to a holiday themed song. This short video showcases some of their learning thus far, featuring several students playing the melody to their holiday song interspersed with student’s definitions of the term ‘melody’.
With the aid of the music department students have been able to adapt to the online learning environment and have found alternative ways of engaging with music. Several students have instruments at home which they have used for this unit, some have used their own voices, and others an online virtual piano. It has been fantastic to see student’s adapting, developing and innovating even during these challenging times.
