- Hello, guys! Today we go to a fantastic journey. In a huge country Music there is a great Kingdom of Harmony. I wonder who lives in this Kingdom? What do you think, what is harmony?

Students: (Provide answers) .

Teacher: Harmony is the chords, the chords, chains of chords, so to speak, beautiful music. Harmony is beauty in everything: in art, drawing, sculpture, architecture, music. Looking at the beautiful picture, we say, "What harmony! ". The same we can say about music. But what is a chord?

Students: (Provide answers) .

Teacher: a chord is a combination of three or more sounds. Guys, do you know any chords?

Students: (Provide answers) .

Teacher: the Chords are different, and they are called so: the Triad, kardexremstar, seventh chord, a four-two chord, the four-three chord... and others.

Kingdom of great Harmony, today we move to the Castle Transluceny chords. We look at the most simple of them: the Triads.

So, open the heavy door of the castle and immediately see the announcement: "Today, the Castle Transluceny chords announced the day Before the major."

Now we tune, sing the scale of C major.

The teacher attaches on the Board and colored cards with pictures of King and Queen. As well as the staff lays out a tonic triad.

Teacher: the Most important is the Tonic triad is the King, he is ruler, he is strong, confident, the most important. As you can see, the triad consists of three notes, three notes, based on the sound of "Until" is the tonic in C major, the main reference sound.

(Teacher plays it melodically) . Hence the name Triad.

(Teacher plays it and sings the sounds with the students: do-mi-Sol) . And now we will do differently: the first row will sing a note Before the second row of Mi, the third Sol.

(The teacher configures the students, each row sings its sound, it turns out the chord) . Guys, do you think that we sang, what have we got?

Students: We sang the chord.

Teacher: Right, well done. Now, listen to the sound of this chord is happy or sad? What is his mood?

Students: have Fun, he's a Jolly good mood.

Teacher: Right, the chord that sounds fun, is called the major. Now, listen to the sound of different chord – minor. (The teacher plays a minor chord) . This chord sounds sad, it's minor. Imagine that this triad is the Queen, she's sad because she doesn't like the color of her dress. Now, sing a minor triad.

(The teacher plays a minor triad melodically and sings: La-do-mi.) We will now sing a minor triad in the series.
(The teacher configures the students, each row sings its sound, it turns out a minor chord) Which chord we sang?

Students: We sang a minor chord.

Teacher: Right, well done. And now listen to the chords - triads and identify them as "paint" .
Students listen, sing in unison and define "paint". The teacher on the blackboard attaches flashcards for major and minor triads, chosen children.

Well, now the King and Queen on the spot. However, you can use notes to record different chords. They are built strictly in a certain order and are denoted by formulas. Now I will show You the easiest way to build chord triads: the notes are clear, one on one, for example, do-mi-Sol. We missed the note re and FA.
(The teacher writes on the Board, students copy. The teacher plays what happened) . The guys that we've got to write it down?

Students: Major triad.

Teacher: That's Right. Its formula is in the key of C major – T 5/3. The letter T means that the Tonic triad. If we were building a major triad out of tonality, his formula would have been 5/3. Here the letter B means that the triad is just a major, or big. Under the triad sign at the bottom of its formula. We got a triad of King – Major Tonic. Offer You on the sound "La" to build their own triad Queen. It is built the same way – using one note: one write, the following noise. How many notes you will have in the triad?

Students: there Will be three notes.

Teacher: Right from the start to perform the work.

The students perform the task. The teacher together with the children check the correct execution of the task.

Teacher: well Done, all well built, now play and listen what have we got?
Students: a Minor chord.
Teacher: Right, and we will denote it by the formula M 5/3, because we built it out of tonality. The letter M refers to the minor or small. Now, hearing job. Record on hearing the chord chain. I'll play you major and minor triads, and you will write their formulas: B or 5/3 M 5/3.

The teacher plays the chord progression:
B5/3 – M 5/3 – B 5/3 – B 5/3 M 5/3.

The students write by ear the chord progression.

Teacher: now I'll play the chord progression in the genre of waltz, and we will try to write her a tune.
Up and down, where the air is clean
Flies yellow sheet.
In an ancient castle, candlelight,

The teacher plays a chord progression and singing any song of poetry.
Teacher: Guys, let's see how many interesting jobs we've done with only two chords. Did you like the lesson?
Students: (Provide answers) .
Teacher: this interesting vocal improvisation, you will leave the Kingdom of Harmony. (The teacher sums up the lesson, students are asked questions on the lesson material for its fixation).
Homework: on a chord progression written in the lesson to compose any melody or song in any genre: polka, waltz, March.

Thank you all. Goodbye.
