Subject: Concert Band
1. Topic-
Rhythm and dynamic study
2. Content-
Syncopated Rhythms, Crescendo, Decrescendo
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
1. The students will effectively convey understanding of Syncopated Rhythms and its implications in Fu-mon

2. The students will be able to play effectively, Crescendo and Decrescendo and apply to previously learned rhythm

3. The students will take lessons learned through variety of warm-up exercises and apply to piece Fu-mon

4. Students will improve note, rhythm, and style accuracy for the Allegro to the end of Fu-mon
4. Objectives-
1. Students will be able to take an applied rhythm and use effectively in a warm up scenario.

2. Students will then take the rhythm and be able to add crescendo.

3. Students will be able to notate difference in rhythm and how it is effected by crescendo and decrescendo as it relates to Fu-mon
5. Materials and Aids-
Chalk Board
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1. Teacher will start lesson by warming up the students by using a ascending and descending scale exercise as well as "remington" on F

2. Teacher will then ask students to do the same exercise while applying a variety of dynamics

3. Teacher will then apply modification to the previous exercise by having different sections play at different dynamic levels so students may understand the effects of unbalanced sound.

B. Development-

1. Students will apply dynamic understanding to a previously learned rhythm.

2. Students will, in groups, play the rhythm in a varied dynamic range.

3. Students will then play exercise a final time together to determine understanding of concept

C. Practice-

1. Students will be lead through the playing of Fu-mon while applying previously learned concepts.

2. Students will be rehearsed through the ending of the piece, focusing on dynamic control and rhythmic accuracy.

D. Independent Practice-

Students will be assessed by their participation in class playing and at a later date, will be asked to perform their material for the teacher.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

Accommodation will be used by breaking down material if needed.

F. Checking for understanding-

Students performance of Fu-mon will determine understanding and act as formal assessment.

G. Closure-

Students, by the end of the lesson, will have a greater understand of dynamic and rhythmic accuracy and how it effects the overall quality of Fu-mon.
