M/J Guitar 2: MAFS.K12.MP.7.1

Big Idea: Mathematical Practice
  • Understanding: Look for and make use of structure.
    • Benchmark: Look for and make use of structure. Proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure. They recognize the significance of an existing line in a geometric figure and can use the strategy of drawing an auxiliary line for solving problems. They also can step back for an overview and shift perspective. They can see complicated things, such as some algebraic expressions, as single objects or as being composed of several objects.

Students will be able to:

  • utilize pattern recognition to read proficiently through unfamiliar musical passages (e.g., scale patterns, arpeggios, intervalic sequences)
  • identify and discuss music theoretical structures (e.g., scales, arpeggios, rhythms, form)
    • basic music theory elements in the areas of pitch, rhythm and form
  • identify the use of chord symbology and apply it while performing literature from the guitar method book or age-appropriate literature
    • Use of basic barre chords using the E and A chord family
    • the I-IV-V7 patterns for keys that involve barre chords
