Jill Trinka and The Bass Hall Children's Concert DVD
Exploring Musical Skills, Folk Songs and Folk Instruments
DVD with Booklet
Grades 1 - 2
Jill Trinka collaborated with some schools in the Fort Worth area to create a concert that would use folk songs and folk instruments to engage children in exercising their singing, counting, aural, and literacy/reading skills. This particular concert was recorded in October 2008 with first grade children at the Bass Performance Hall in Ft. Worth, TX.
The instruments introduced are the folk guitar, autoharp, five-string banjo and Appalachian lap dulcimer. Through these instruments and singing folk songs, the children's musical skills being developed include vocal glissandi, matching pitch, in-tune singing, steady beat, listening, and inner hearing (audiating). Also being developed are text improvisation, performance of specified movements and actions during listening, using physical action to show form, strumming beat, and comparing sounds. Jill engages the children's critical thinking and logic skills with questions about the folk instruments. Throughout the concert, the children are asked to count (strings, pegs, "shoos," hops, numbers and animals) and read. Selections read are Over in the Meadow (item 841998) and The Crabfish (item 804148).
This concert DVD will be a valuable classroom resource in many ways:
1. Greeting and Vocal Warm-Up
2. "Shoo Fly" and the Guitar
3. "John, the Rabbit"
4. The Autoharp and "Over in the Meadow"
5. Stretch and Review
6. "There Was a Man and He Was Mad"
7. The Banjo and "Jim Along, Josie"
8. "The Crabfish"
9. The Dulcimer and "Go, Tell Aunt Rhody"
