Lesson 1: Pulse in Music
Week 1
Introduction
Activity I
Sing Leron, Leron Sinta and move to the rhythm of the
song.

In music, the duration of sound and silence is important.
Duration refers to how long and how short tones and silence
last. These tones and silence follow a certain beat. Beat can
be felt with or without sound. We clap, walk, tap, march,
dance, and play musical instruments to show the rhythm and
beat of music.
Remember:
The symbol (

) shows the pulse of the sound.
Rest ( ) is the symbol used to show silence.
We can feel the pulse through clapping, tapping, walking,
chanting, and playing rhythmic instruments.

Lesson 4: Dynamics through


Movements
Week 4
Introduction:










Activity 1
Sing the song Tunog at Galaw ng Hayop.
















Dynamics helps us put expression in the music
we make. There are parts of music that must be
played either loud or soft. We can interpret
dynamics through body movements. Small
movement can be considered soft, while big
movement is loud. We can also relate dynamics to
animal movements. Likewise, dynamics is what we
call the volume in music.
