本学年教程要求每一名学生参加器乐合奏,学会唱两首中文歌曲

本学年教程要求学生学会唱两首中文歌曲,参加器乐合奏(两首中文歌曲)并在2020年一月校内春节联欢会上演出。

以下提供两首中文歌曲的歌词曲谱。有些乐器,需学生根据自己乐器做adaptation, 如 trumpet, trombone, saxophone,  clarinet, Pipa, flute ,等。 根据往年我的教学经验,学生或已具有所需乐理知识或可以琢磨出来。

请家长现在就督促孩子开始着手练习。

请欣赏我去年教的八年级标准中文甲班,在2019 春节器乐合奏演出录像:器乐合奏《一条大河》;合唱《我的祖国》

——————————————————————————————————–

《我和我的祖国》

作词:张藜  作曲:秦咏诚

我和我的祖国,一刻也不能分割,无论我走到哪里,都流出一首赞歌。

我歌唱每一座高山, 我歌唱每一条河,袅袅炊烟,小小村落,路上一道辙。

我最亲爱的祖国, 我永远紧依着您的心窝, 你用你那母亲脉搏和我诉说。

我的祖国和我,像海和浪花一朵,浪是那海的赤子,海是那浪的依托。

每当大海在微笑,我就是笑的旋涡,我分担着海的忧愁,分享海的欢乐。
