    5. Write down the different notes you have learned and how many beats they are worth.  Example:  Whole note has 4 beats. 

    Or Write the definition or symbol for a musical term: 

    Example: Treble clef – is where the ladies sing or you can draw the symbol to get credit. 

    Please write this down and send to me or bring back to school when we return. 

    Please write at least 5 of these to get credit for one class.  If you do 10 terms – this is worth 2 class periods. 

    6. Find a family member or baby sitter or family friend to teach you a song they learned in primary school, but it has to be something you don’t already know.  This counts as one period.  

    7. Play note names from this link for 20 minutes.  This counts toward 1 class, but if you do it for 40 minutes. This will count toward 2.  


    8. Keep a running list of all the times you hear music throughout the day.  Was there music where you never noticed it before?  What was the purpose of the music?  Write this on paper. 


    Choose a character from something you are reading and make a theme song for this character.  Write a brief explanation of why this song fits this character.
