On a Cold October Night-VOCAL Exploration Lesson
A lesson plan for a FABULOUS good time exploring the sounds “on a cold October night.”
Add xylophone on a D minor bordun.
Add some color with percussion instruments on “eyes, “bright”, “creatures”, and “night.”
Prominent melodic elements include the opening la, ti, do and do, re, mi and then the ending do, ti, la.
Rhythmic elements-quarter note, half note, eighth notes.
Add ukulele. The D minor chord is fairly easy because it’s the fingering for F with an added third finger. Play D minor for the entire song.
The fun ice-breaker activity!
A great beat passing game and chance to play mi-re-do-ti-la on instruments! FUN!
Multi-day lesson plans that include dancing, instrument playing, stick routine, ukulele parts, and so much more!
