Listen, People, to My Chant

Listen, People, to My Chant

By Andy Mullen 

Tunes for Teaching

If you're like me, singing and chanting in class is difficult these days. I need tracks that I can use so that students can clearly hear me and I can focus on engaging them. 

Here is a Tune for Teaching that challenges students to "be different" and engage in the skill of Improvisation. Their charge is to listen to the pattern and chant a different four (and then eight!) macrobeat pattern using rhythm solfege. 

This song is from my book Fifty Tunes for Teaching. The notation appears below. 

Fifty Tunes for Teaching

Check out this book which contains 50 new songs with and without words for use in the general music class. Sequenced according to Gordon's Music Learning Theory.
