Lesson 3: Song Structure, Bars, Poetry Stanzas- Students will define key terms, learn, and identify basic song structure, and use poetic form to write their own song chorus.
Lesson 4: The BPM Game, Finding a Title & Word Banks- Students will define key terms, be provided examples of the ranges of BPM, complete an assessment on BPM range comprehension using song samples in Kahoot, create their own word bank, and learn about the significance of song title selection.
