Introduce your students to the musical element of pitch! This fun Miniclip looks at how pitch can either be high or low, and shows the difference between ascending and descending pitches using demonstrations with a range of instruments.
In this colourful Miniclip, your students will learn all about the musical element of texture—the layers of sound in music! Through a mixture live-action and animation, students will learn about the differences between thick and thin textures; and the effects of monophonic, homophonic, and polyphonic textures. Also discussed is the concept of a melody and the role of accompaniment, demonstrated with a performance of Waltzing Matilda. Show Less
