Variations on Twinkle, Twinkle


This lesson will introduce the concept of variation of a musical idea to create variety and interest in a composition. The teacher will provide a template of the melody to Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. The students will take this original melody and create 3 variations using the digital tool. The first variation will use altered rhythms, the second will use an altered melody and the third will use a combination of rhythmic and melodic variation. *This lesson could be modified for more advanced classes by incorporating harmonic and/or modal variation, instrumentation variation, etc. to meet the instructional needs of the class.
