Over the past 7 weeks I have been learning to describe the characteristics of music from songs of a different time and place.
I can describe these characteristics in a piece of music:
Melody - A part of a song that gets stuck in your head.
Harmony - A major song which is a happy song or a minor song which is a sad song.
Rhythm - A strong or regular repeated pattern.
Timbre - What makes the song unique.
Form - How the song is put together.
Here is an example of my learning.
