Watch that tone in your voice! Watch that tone in your voice!

4. Got Form?
My name is Rondo, I’m the leader of the pack. Gonna talk about form and I’m not takin’ any slack.
Ya gotta organize music, gotta do it today, so here’s a few forms to get you on your way. We’re talking form, Norm!
Were’ talking shape, Jake! Check it out!
Start with Strophic, you can call it A, It’s so simple, like a child at play, Like “Down in the Valley” or “Amazing Grace,”
Music time cannot erase. When you add another A, the words might change but the music is the same.
Now you’ve got another verse, makes it easy to rehearse.
Now do something different with a change of harmony, you’ve got a new section, you can call it B. It’s verse and chorus, A and B combined, like “O Susannah” or “Clementine” Go back to A again, don’t go astray. Put all you heard together, now don’t delay,
You’ll find a form played ‘round the world today! Add it all up: A A B A! We got form! Yeah, we’ve got Form! Theme and variations, and rounds that rhyme, we’ll save these form for another time, we’ve got form, form, we’ve got form!


5. Express yourself
Refrain: Express yourself! [four times] When you’re making music, there’s somethin’ you should know.
There’s no one else quite like you, so go with your own flow. You’re gonna reap just what you sow!

Refrain: Express yourself! [four times]
Get dramatic with the words. Use some cool enunciation. Now you can paint a picture. Use your own imagination.
Mess around with the melody. Change the length of the duration. Never the same way twice, don’t let your mind be on vacation!

Refrain: Express yourself! [four times]
Give yourself permission, and your teacher, too. Anyone can do it! Now it’s up to you! Now what I say is true.
Refrain: Express yourself! [four times]
Now do it today! Hey, hey, hey! Express yourself!

6. Music and Me
Music and me, we go together so naturally. Music and me! Music and me! Music and me, we go together like ABC.
Music and me, music and me! When I’m feeling happy, when I’m feeling sad, music always picks me up, and it makes me feel so glad. I’m singing
Music and me, we go together so naturally. Music and me! Music and me! Music and me, we go together like 1-2-3.
Music and me, music and me! When I’m feeling lonely, when I’m feeling blue, music always does the trick, it’ll do
the same for you, and that’s why Music and me, we go together so naturally. Music and me, music, music, music and me!




4th Grade ‘Music and Me’ Script Scene 1: Mrs. ONE’S Class
Nicolas Caceras [student]: Help! Help! Help! Help everybody! I’ve lost music! I’ve
lost music!
Anna Pawloski [teacher]: What on Earth is all this racket about? Nicolas, what’s
going on here?
Nicolas Caceras: (very dramatically) Oh, Mrs. Pawloski, I’ve completely
lost music! I’m like a ship without a rudder, a team
without a coach, a kid without a video game!
Maggie Mixon: Take it easy, Nicolas. What do you mean, “you lost
music?”
Nicolas Caceras: Well, I had it. It was right here in my ears and in my
heart, and all of a sudden, it’s gone! All gone! I’m like
a day without sunshine, a balloon without helium, a
burger without fries.
Jamie Packman: (to the audience) Nicolas can be very dramatic, if you
know what I mean.
Anna Pawloski [teacher]: Well, Nicolas, it can be a very serious thing if you DID
lose music.
Mollie Belisle: Are you sure it’s gone completely?
Nicolas Caceras: Yes! Yes! Completely! Listen! (He takes a deep
breath and opens his mouth to sing. Nothing
happens.)
All: (awestruck) Wow! He is right!
Cole Burdette: Like a train without a whistle.
John Monarchik: A bear without a growl.
Michael Ferguson: A cow without a moo!
Mollie Belisle: A burger without fries.
Anna Pawloski [teacher]: Well, maybe we can all help the get the music back.
Nicolas Caceras: Yes! Hurry! But how will we do it?
Anna Pawloski [teacher]: We’ll build it.
All: Build it?
Miles Whitmore: Oh, I know! We’ll build the music back, using all of the
elements of music. Then it will be whole again.
All: Great idea! All right! I get it! (all at the same time)
Nicolas Caceras: Elements? I don’t know. I thought elements were like
minerals and gases and stuff.
Jake Montgomery: Well, in a way, the elements of music are similar to
the elements found in nature.
Leann Kelly: And if you put those elements together, you can make
some amazing things.
Teagan Thompson: Well, come on Einstein, let’s get going!
William Bowen: Where should we start?
Anna Pawloski [teacher]: Did you ever get one of those songs in your head that
you just can’t seem to forget?
All: Yeah! Sure have! (etc. all at the same time)
Anna Pawloski [teacher]: The tune that you hear is called the Melody!
Dillon Joiner: The melody is one of the most important elements of
music.


Sing: It’s a Melody

melody!
Grace Sanders: Of course there is!
Kyle Kushel: Melody is just one of the elements of music.
Emma Rose Sycks: Perfect!
Olivia Vaughn: Perfect? What do you mean, “perfect?”
Abby Thomas: One of the most important elements of music is all
about the pounding beat!
Claire Dane: It’s called rhythm.
Grant Kelly: Rhythm is the element of music that gives the pulse
and beat.
Nicholas Hewett: Let’s get it going!


Sing: Rhythm of the Heart

Scene 3: Mrs. ONE’S Class

Dillon Joiner: Hey, Jamie! There’s a call for you on your cell.
Miles Whitmore: “Hello, Mr. Jamie! I am calling to inform you that you
have been randomly selected to receive a lifetime
supply of tone quality, which we are sure you will
enjoy.
Jake Montgomery: In order to receive you free tone supply, please send
a check or money order for five hundred dollars
before tomorrow at 6pm.
Leann Kelly: We will then supply you with a beautiful tone we know
you will enjoy.”
Jamie Packman: Wow! Five hundred dollars for tone quality seems a
little expensive.
Maggie Mixon: Tone quality isn’t something you have to pay for, it’s
just another element of music that’s yours absolutely
free.
Michael Ferguson: The element of tone is as diverse and plentiful as the
colors of the rainbow.
William Bowen: It can be fun to experiment with to make your music
sound different, even when the melody, rhythm and
harmony are all the same!
Jamie Packman: Huh?
Cole Burdette: Sure. . . our voices can sound happy or sad,
John Monarchik: bright or dark,
Teagan Thompson: big or small,
All: So remember, watch that tone in your voice!


Sing: Watch that Tone in Your Voice

Nicholas Hewett: Melody, rhythm, tone quality. Wow! I don’t know if I’m
coming or going!
Emma Downey: Of course you don’t, Nicholas.
Kyle Kushel: That’s because you don’t have any form.
Phillip Game: Form?
Jack McGinnis: That’s right.
Ryan Conner: Form is what puts the music in some sort of order.
Abby Thomas: It organizes the elements so that it all makes sense.
Nicholas Hewett: I don’t get it.
Clementine McCard [Ronda]:Yo! Thank you very much! Thank you! I have heard
you have some questions about form.
David Cooper: That’s right, Ronda.
Cate Sowersby: We’re trying to get our music back.
Olivia Vaughn: We have already learned about melody, rhythm, and
tone.
Maria Bonaparte: Now we’re just hoping you can shed some light on the
musical element of “form” for us.
Clementine McCard: Yo! You have come to the right place, sister! Ronda is
my name and form is my game. Get the picture?
All: Yes! We get it!
Clementine McCard: Better get goin’ and let Ronda and the ABC’s explain
the world of form to you!


Sing: Got Form?

Iain Thomas: What do you mean, “What are we going to with all
these elements?”
Kyle Blasingame: We’re going to make music!
Ken Roberts: But what are we going to say?
India Sloan: Oh, you’re right. I think we need some words.
Carter Fricano: Not necessarily.
Elliott Wilson: Although lots of music has words, you can make
wonderful music without any words at all.
Georgi Prevosti: But you should think about what you want to say with
your music, even if you say it without any words.
Emily Davignon: Making music with your voice, an instrument or even
your body is more than just mastering the elements
we’ve talked about so far.
India Sloan: With music you have the opportunity to communicate
like nothing else.
Nathan Little: Use music to say something that is important to you.
All: Express your mind! Express your heart! Express yourself!
