1 Music – Gr 3-4 The basics

2 Components of Music pitch dynamics (loudness or softness) tone colour

3 Pitch how high or low the sound is
For example an instrument with a low pitch is a big drum. A high pitch instrument would be the violin.

4 Dynamics The loudness or softness in music.

5 Tone Colour Tone color is described by words like bright, dark, brilliant, mellow, and rich. Tone colors can create different moods. Specific instruments can reinforce a melodies emotional impact: the brilliant sound of a trumpet is suited to heroic or military tunes; the soothing tone color of a flute fits the mood of a calm melody.

6 Duration The length of time a musical sound lasts.

7 Elements of Music Rhythm, Melody, Harmony, Key, Texture, Form.

8 Rhythm Is the flow of music through time.
Rhythm has several aspects: beat, meter, accent and syncopation, and tempo. Beat - Is the basic unit of time in music Metre - A rhythm determined by the number of beats and the time value assigned to each note in a measure. Syncopation/Accent – Simply it is a general term for a disturbance or interruption of the regular flow of rhythm; a stop where normally it wouldn’t be Tempo - the speed music is suppose to be played at

9 Melody After hearing a piece of music, we usually remember its melody best. The melody is usually the part that you will hum after the music finishes.

10 Harmony - Harmony is the use of different pitches (tones, notes), or chords at the same time. -A chord is a combination of three or more tones sounded at once.

11 Key Key refers to the presence of a central note, scale, and chord within a piece. For example on a piano there are 7 basic keys C-D-E-F-G-A-B

12 Texture - When you describe the texture of a piece of music, you are describing how much is going on in the music at any given moment. -Texture is the way the melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic materials are combined in a composition.

13 Form Every piece of music has an overall plan or structure, the "big picture", so to speak. This is called the form of the music.
