Welcome to the Modifications page for Special Needs and Gifted & Talented students in the composition section of this unit.
Kathryn (Gifted & Talented)
Kathryn, thank you for visiting this page. If you have completed the remix activity already I would like you to create a new MIDI track in your remix where you can improvise or create a short melody over ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’. You may select the instrument yourself and it can be any length you like but I would like you to use the D Minor scale in creating/improvising this melody.
D Minor scale:
Just as the other students will be uploading their remixes via Divshare, I would like you to do the same with your added melody.
Noel (Special Needs)
For this particular exercise, what I feel would be best is to have a teacher’s aide (or the teacher) do some of the work in GarageBand and demonstrate to Noel how to move/shift the different audio layers around. Noel will respond to the changing music, enjoy watching the program and with the help of the teacher/teacher’s aide, become involved in manipulating texture.
By completing this activity, Noel will achieve the following Life Skills outcomes:
LS. 5 experiments in organising musical sounds
LS.10 engages in performing, composing and listening experiences for enjoyment
