Body Percussion

With Jason Nious

Lesson Plan

Grades: 4-5

Mastering Rhythm, Pitch, Volume and Tempo with your Body: This lesson breaks down the definition of each of these musical elements as it relates to body percussion. Students will learn short, rhythmic patterns that illustrate each of these four terms, repeating them in a sequence to create a mini body percussion routine.

By the end of the lesson students will be able to:

•Define each of the four musical vocabulary terms

•Demonstrate the differences between each of the musical terms on their bodies

•Rehearse and recall a body percussion sequence

 

Materials: Your body and space to move
