Music composition can be easy with a little software assistance. The class uses Garageband to listen to, write, sing, and record a blues song.

Keeping a steady beat, singing soft, loud, and in unison - sounds like music class to me!

Music and lyrics are not included.
In this waves worksheet, students experiment with a 'Wiggler' to study the relationship between frequency, period, and the patterns created by the movement of the strings. Students idenitfy how wavelengths relate to frequency and they write a mathematical rule for how they change together. Students use a sound and wave generator to study singing pipes.
What's the connection between singing and a state quarter? Creative thinking and observation, perhaps. Pupils will observe and take note of all the characteristics found on the Tennessee state quarter. They will then use their observations to write a song describing the coin.

Students research world culture by collaborating on a performance with their class. In this harmony lesson, students practice using singing techniques to accompany the voices of their classmates and create melodies from a list of different songs. Students read music books and listen to sample songs from around the globe before performing their own versions.
Students are introduced to the concept of sight-singing involving constant intervals between solfege syllables, scales and scale tones. They practice the concept of interval scales and arpeggio patterns in a variety of keys and sing from a written format rather than aural cues.
Students improve sight-singing skills beginning with singing either pitches or rhythm accompanied by piano. As they improve, more complex notation, intervals, rhythms, and tempos can be added. As students improve, they incorporate sight-singing exercises into reading literature.
