The different figures introduced in each of the units are worked on. In a progressive way all possible combinations are presented. Exercises based on body percussion, laterality and polyrhythm are used for this, always with an auditory reference for the student, and with varied musical bases that work as a means to establish the sense of internal pulsation in our students.
The student must identify and write in the interactive module of the platform the different rhythms heard. With this we intend a perfect mental location of the rhythmic figures practiced in each unit.
The platform randomly develops rhythmic combinations defined by the teacher, which complement the work done and allow improvisations, both individual as in group.
It is structured in small blocks distributed in the twenty units of each course.
In each unit there is an explanatory and dynamic video, produced by aulavirtualmusica.com, with which the student can review the concepts that the teacher has taught in class.
THEORETICAL QUESTIONNAIRES ON THE PLATFORM
Each unit has, among its contents, a theoretical questionnaire strong>, in which students must answer some questions that help the teacher to follow the evolution of him; we will be able to know which topics are better known and which ones we can influence. These quizzes are fun and pleasing in design for learners. Throughout the course there are also some super-questionsnaires, which, by way of evaluation, will allow us to follow the evolution of the students.
Mainly in the last courses, the virtual platform adds to all this theoretical material a series of games that reinforce what the students are learning. Can you imagine learning tonalities with card games or compound beats with a platform game? That is aulavirtualmusica.com
WRITTEN QUESTIONNAIRE AND CALLIGRAPHY
In the book we will find some pages dedicated to the written resolution of theory exercises, as well as a space in which to practice musical calligraphy. span>
The platform includes a note reading module in keys with adjustable speed, to improve reading agility.
Three lessons per unit, in which students are progressively introduced to the practice of intervals, rhythmic figures, etc. All the lessons are original compositions, and with accompaniments that allow you to learn about most musical styles and provide knowledge about the different elements of harmony.
It is possible to choose the key of each lesson (Sol, Fa in fourth and Do in third) from the first course, so that everyone students can practice in the key of the instrument they are learning to play. All the lessons have a “turtle mode” that allows each of them to be worked on at the speed desired by the student, and can then be carried out “in tempo” with the proposed accompaniment.
The platform aulavirtualmusica.com has a specific and progressive intonation module, included in each of the units. The student can sing and the platform corrects him in real time. Thus, the teacher can follow the evolution of his students, since the program informs both of the exercises carried out.
Aulavirtualmusica offers a different game in each unit. Platforms, card games, agility, tennis, dexterity, etc..
All the games are original and have been developed by aulavirtualmusica.com with psychopedagogical advice, and totally focused on learning musical language in a playful way. Students can compete with themselves, with others in their class and also, in some games, with those from other schools.
Designed for use in the classroom, they allow up to twelve users to be connected at the same time. Can you imagine learning intervals like this? That is aulavirtualmusica.com
The platform includes a series of resources for teachers, which are continually increasing and are based on the needs of the members of our educational community detected in their classrooms. We currently have:
Staff template to use on digital whiteboards or touch panels.
Rhythm random generator in simple and compound measures.
Generator of readings at sight in different keys.
Intonation exercises in real time programmable by the teacher.
About the project
Our success is based, especially, on the interaction with all the teachers who teach our methodology, creating a huge working group in which everyone participates in the development of the improvements that are incorporated day by day
We appreciate the participation of the students of the Canet de Berenguer Musical Society, in Valencia, Spain. All the images and recordings have been made in their classrooms.
