Music is in the Air at Jefferson Intermediate

Lately, students in the 6th grade have been working on basic ear training skills in music. Given a sung or played musical pattern, students use colored cards to transcribe what they hear. Possible rhythms are written on the cards, and the colors of the cards indicate the pitch (high or low, do/re/mi, etc.) The development of these skills is crucial to attaining independent musicianship, which allows students more opportunities to explore and understand the music they love.
