•Number of Leaders: 6
   •Teacher, plus one leader

Introduction
                          African Music
• On important occasions such as religious festivals, funerals or at
  harvest time there is always plenty of music and dancing which
  everyone joins in. Music provides a good way for the whole
  community to meet together to enjoy themselves, talk to friends
  and celebrate the occasion. People are proud that they have their
  own versions of a piece of music which is quite distinctive – they
  can be offended if you suggest it sounds similar to playing in the
  next village. Even when living in the cities, people from the same
  village will meet together to dance and sing. Their music becomes
  very important in reminding them of where they come from.
Learning Objectives
• Students will be able to identify the importance of music in the
  culture
• Will be exposed to a variety of instruments used throughout the
  culture
• They will also listen and sing a variety of songs and identify the
  different styles.
• Develop a better understanding for the relationship between music
  and war in certain ethnic groups of Africa
   – Paying particular attention to music as a form of escape, tradition and
     self- expression.
• Compare and contrast the differences in music ranging from region
  to region
• Understand the importance of the drum and its significance varying
  from culture to culture.
Materials
•   Map of Africa
•   Worksheets of multiple African instruments
•   Worksheets with different songs
•   A written myth that can be handed out and read aloud
•   Music styles that can be played aloud in class.
•   Videos reflecting the importance of music for dance,
    storytelling, rights of passage etc… (This can be found on
    the Internet, YouTube in particular.
Activity Materials: Making a
            African Drum
•   A medium to large sized container with a lid.
•   Rubber paper
•   Large rubber bands
•   Multicolored feathers
•   Colored construction paper
•   Paint
•   Cut-out symbols
•   Shells
•   Small rocks
•   Craft Glue
•   Scissors
Anticipatory Set

• I would do this lesson plan first thing in the morning, prior to
  students arriving. Professor would place map of Africa on the
  board. Place the desks into groups. Each group having a
  packet for each student containing music, pictures,
  worksheets etc.. Have music playing while students are
  arriving. Each group will already have a region of music to
  study.
Class Discussion Prior to Activity

•   What does music mean to you?
•   When do you listen, play or sing music?
•   How does music make you feel?
•   What do you know about African Music?
•   What do you think African Music is like?
Lesson

• After the discussion questions, we will look at a variety of
  cultures in Africa, and study their music. We will discuss the
  importance of music in these cultures. We will also talk
  about how war has influenced and affected much of the
  music and its styles. I will show a power point of the many
  different types of instruments. We will also compare and
  contrast the different styles, decorations and dress of
  instruments and people. Watch a video on the importance
  and many functions the drum plays in the culture. I will
  then tell the students in each group what particular region
  of Africa they will be presenting. They will study the music
  and styles and at the end of the lesson, each group will
  present its region, sing or play a song.
Activity 1: Drum Making

•   After having studied the different styles of drum found in the groups region, the
    students will make a drum similar to the one found in their culture.
•   They will decorate the tub
     – The decoration must be similar to the drums of the region studied in the group
•   Then I will place a rubber sheet over the top of the drum and a rubber band
    around the top of the base.
•   The students then can practice different beats, tempos, and rhythms with their
    drums and combine them with songs of their culture.
•   The next morning each group will go up and present some information on their
    region/culture and sing, dance or drum music similar to their region.
•   They will also describe why they placed specific decorations on their drums
•   Last they will state the importance their drums have to that community.

Music provides a good way for the whole community to meet together to enjoy themselves, talk to friends and celebrate the occasion. People are proud that they have their own versions of a piece of music which is quite distinctive – they can be offended if you suggest it sounds similar to playing in the next village. Even when living in the cities, people from the same village will meet together to dance and sing. Their music becomes very important in reminding them of where they come from.
