Music

ACTIVITY 1

TO STUDY FOUR DIFFERENT STYLES OF MUSIC

[LO 2.7]

Let us see how many styles of music can you identify – just to determine how vibrant the music world is.

Your educator will explain the following four different styles and play examples of each:

  • Kwaito
  • Soukous / Kwassa-Kwassa
  • Folk song
  • Musicals

STEP 1

Collect information on THREE of the styles. This information can be in the form of pictures, newspaper clippings and CD covers and must be pasted into your Learner Journal.

STEP 2

Listen to the music (or video) and complete the given tables by selecting the most correct description from each group, indicating it by making a cross.

1. Kwaito

Type of voice Mark  Pitch Mark  Use Mark  Style Mark 
Male voice High Dancing Africa
Female voice Low Listening South Africa
Mixed choir High and Low Worshipping Classical
Children’s voices Middle Singing together Popular
None of the above Similar to speech None of the above None of the above

2. Soukous / Kwassa-Kwassa

Type of voice Mark  Pitch Mark  Use Mark  Style Mark 
Male voice High Dancing Africa
Female voice Low Listening South Africa
Mixed choir High and Low Worshipping Classical
Children’s voices Middle Singing together Popular
None of the above Similar to speech None of the above None of the above

3. Folk song/melodies

Type of voice Mark  Pitch Mark  Use Mark  Style Mark 
Male voice High Dancing Africa
Female voice Low Listening South Africa
Mixed choir High and Low Worshipping Classical
Children’s voices Middle Singing together Popular
None of the above Similar to speech None of the above None of the above

4. Musical

Type of voice Mark  Pitch Mark  Use Mark  Style Mark 
Male voice High Dancing Africa
Female voice Low Listening South Africa
Mixed choir High and Low Worshipping Classical
Children’s voices Middle Singing together Popular
None of the above Similar to speech None of the above None of the above

Activity 2

To distinguish between the four different voices in choral music

[lo 2.6]

The oldest instrument is most certainly the voice! Man sang before he made instruments.

Today the voice is still one of the most popular and most available of instruments. Why? Give examples.

STEP 1

Name the FOUR voice types in choral music and describe what each voice sounds like. Draw up a grid in your workbook or on a sheet of paper, using the following headings:

  • Voice types
  • What it sounds like

STEP 2

Take as examples any four persons whom you know. Then choose the most suitable terms with regard to pitch and timbre to describe their specific voices.

STEP 3

Which instrument suits which voice?

Soprano violin
Alto Cello
Tenor Viola
Bass Double bass

Which voice usually sings the melody?

Which string instrument usually plays the melody?

ACTIVITY 3

TO IDENTIFY MUSIC SYMBOLS

[LO 2.4]

To write music we use symbols.

These symbols we call music notation.

1. PITCH

Step 1

Pitch means how high or how low the note is.

Music moves up (higher - ascends) and down (lower - descends) as you would climb up or down a ladder.

To write music we use staves (singular: staff).

The higher the note sounds the higher the notes are written.

are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.

what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
