Music and You: Teacher Guide.
This teacher's guide presents a course for training hearing-impaired students to listen to, create, and perform music. It emphasizes development of individual skills and group participation, encouraging students to contribute a wide variety of auditory and musical abilities and experiences while developing auditory acuity and attention. A variety of instructional aids are described for those who may experience difficulty discriminating some parameters of sound or music (e.g., amplification systems, a "vibrating floor," color organs, oscilloscopes, real-time spectrum analyzers, tuning forks, metronomes, and drum machines). Seven learning objectives are presented: (1) identify ways to use music as a form of communication and expression; (2) identify basic elements of sound and sound production; (3) describe the process of translating sound elements into music elements of pitch, loudness, rhythm, and timbre; (4) read basic musical notation, including all notes on the grand staff, rhythm markings, and dynamic markings; (5) play a simple musical composition on an instrument, reading it from musical notation; (6) contribute to creating a class musical composition; and (7) participate in performing the class musical composition. Sample listening activities are described and equipment sources listed. (VW)
