Chords and Improvisation

Tenth graders identify and interpret how to recognize traditional harmonic progressions such as I-V-I in writing or performance. They experience improvising simple melodic patterns based on traditional harmonic progressions. By coupling chord identification and improvisation, 10th graders learn that a certain pitch has both melodic and harmonic attributes.

Lesson Planet helps me search from such a large variety of creative and innovative teaching ideas from dedicated teachers. I am always looking for ideas to better teach my students and solicit the help of others in the education field. Many of the lessons guide students from concrete to abstract learning. Keep up the great work!
