Elements of Music


Rhythm

Rhythm

  • Concepts:

  • Music may be comparatively fast or slow, depending on the speed of the underlying pulse.

  • Music may become faster or slower by changing the speed of the underlying pulse.

  • A series of beats may be organized into regular or irregular groupings by stressing certain beats.


Rhythm1

Rhythm

  • Individual sounds and silences within a rhythmic line may be longer than, shorter than, or the same as other sounds within the line.

  • Individual sounds and silences within a rhythmic line may be longer than, shorter than or the same as the underlying steady beat or shortest pulse.

  • Accented sounds within a rhythmic line may sound with, before or after the accented underlying beat.

  • The expressiveness of music is affected by the way timbre, dynamics, articulation, rhythm, melody, harmony, form, tempo, and texture contribute to the musical whole.

  • Styles/genres: blues, pop, rock, rap, country, game songs, work songs, lullabies, marches, patriotic, folk songs. http://www.lib.virginia.edu/speccol/exhibits/music/hymns_shout.html

  • The quality of a sound is affected by the material, shape, and size of the source.

  • The quality of a sound is affected by the way the sound is produced.

  • The total sound is affected by the number and qualities of sounds occurring at the same time.

    Allegro ( fast)

    Andante (walking speed)

    Adagio (slow)

    Largo (very slow)

    Ritardando (gradually slow down)


Harmony

Harmony

  • Concepts:

  • Chords and melody may move simultaneously in relation to each other.

  • A series of simultaneous sounds may alternate between activity and rest.

  • Two or more pitches may be sounded simultaneously.

  • Two or more musical lines may occur simultaneously.


Melody

Melody1

Melody

  • Each pitch within a melody moves in relation to a home tone.
