Music: key instruments

Key instruments

Activity 1

To distinguish between high and low [lo 2.5]

First listen to the pitch.

Read the following sentences out aloud:

It looks like john

Or

It looks like john?

What is the difference?

HIGH

MIDDLE

LOW

Try to say the following sentences in different pitches.

Where did you put the book?

Deidre is really a pretty girl

I cannot understand it at all!

Accentuate the different words and listen to what happens!

Write a few sentences of your own and test your friends . . .

Activity 2

To identify instruments [lo 2.4, 2.5]

Perhaps it is the first time that you really listen to different instruments. It will help to develop your listening skills.

Listen to THE CARNIVAL OF THE ANIMALS and then complete the following tasks.

  • A carnival is a festive occasion where among other things, processions are held. In The Carnival of the Animals, music is used to portray different animals in a humorous way.
  • Camille Saint-Saëns is the composer. A composer is the person who writes the music. Saint-Saëns wrote these humorous pieces of music as entertainment for himself and his friends.

Royal march of the lion

Complete:

  • Time
  • Tempo
  • Is the instrument high and/or low?
  • Describe what you hear. What does the lion do?

The composer uses two pianos to portray the lion.

The piano is a key instrument:

  • Many notes can be played simultaneously on a key instrument.
  • The pitch: The notes are from very low to very high.

All the notes are in alphabetical order (A to G) and you can clearly distinguish between black and white notes. Complete the white notes on the piano by following the given pattern:

  • There are two types of pianos: an upright piano and a grand piano.
  • Other key instruments:

How is sound produced on the piano?

Inside the piano there are strings and small hammers. As soon as a key is pressed by a finger, the little hammer strikes the string. The string vibrates and sound is produced.

The harder the note is pressed, the louder the sound, and the softer the note is pressed, the softer the sound.

The person who plays the piano is called a pianist (plural: pianists).

Paste a picture of A piano below and state whether it isan upright or a grand piano .

Assessment

LEARNING OUTCOME 2: REFLECTING The learner will be able to reflect critically and creative on artistic and cultural processes, products and styles in past and present contexts.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

2.4 recognises time signatures such as four-four and three-four;

2.5 listens to and identifies musical instruments in terms of appearance, name, how sound is produced, timbre and general pitch classification (high-low).

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
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.
