Grade 6 Student Led Conferences

Guiding Questions:

What is composition?
Is a composition the same or different every time you perform it?
What are two examples of compositions you created during this unit?
Were you given any patterns or examples to inspire your compositions?
Why compose two-part compositions?


Your student will now guide you through composing a two-part composition using one pattern in your feet and a different pattern in your hands.


What are the different 16th note (TKDM) patterns you could have used in your body percussion composition? Practice reading and clapping the tan cards with 16th note patterns.

Read the instructions found on the activity page. Create a pattern and try to perform it together. Have fun!


Students from 6K and 6O recorded their performances. Check it out and follow along with their paper to reflect on what they performed accurately and what still needs work. Students from 6R can give you a live performance!

Are they keeping a steady beat? Are they comfortable? Are they performing what they wrote?
