This is a lesson including listening, performing and composing activities. They could be used as standalone activities or to complement other lessons on learning note values, musical elements, rhythm of words, following a beat, call and response. It can be adapted for the needs of your students by adding more notes values and rests. More advanced students can play the patterns using instruments or add notes to the rhythm patterns to create melodies. The listening can be extended by adding more examples of different tempos for students to sort into the plates. It can be easily adapted for identification of dynamics by writing dynamics in the plates rather than tempo. Italian terms can be used instead of common terminology.
