FROM MS. PERRYMAN:
NOTE OF THE WEEK-WHOLE NOTE
(Read below for younger students)
The term “note” in music describes the pitch and the duration of a musical sound. We use notes to create music. The first note is called a semibreve or in the US it’s called a ‘whole note’. It’s like a small oval shaped zero or letter O which is a good way to think of it. We call this oval-shaped part of a note ‘the note head’. A semibreve has a value of four beats. That means when we play a semibreve we count to four while holding the note.
Draw a whole note on each line and space of the staff (a staff is a system of 5 lines and four spaces on which you write music note values.)
Label their letters.
Find the whole notes in the song below.
Clap whole notes when they appear in the song.
