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.
