Duration | Structure
Students should begin the lesson by playing Pass the Beat.
In a four beat pattern, students will say one word each, like so:
PASS / THE / BEAT / (clap)
Students will continue to pass this pattern around the circle, until one of them says the wrong word, or goes too fast or too slow. Once a student is 'out' they must sit down - its important that they are silent for the rest of the game to prevent the other students from being distracted.
Student's will learn the bass line and structure of Could Have Been Me using the score below. Before playing it they should look carefully for all the repeats and discuss bar lines and rests.
Let the students play one more round of pass the beat before pack up and then have them line up at the door.
