The culture of Mindanao is as colorful as the geography and the peoples who live in Mindanao. Before learning the music, let us find out what you already know.

K-W-L Chart: Write what you currently know about the music of Mindanao under column 1 and what you want to know about the music of Mindanao under column 2.

GUIDED LISTENING: Listen to examples of vocal music from Mindanao from the resources segment. Reflect on: a. What is the function of the music? What do you think is the message of the music? b. How were the varied musical elements (timbre, dynamics, rhythm, pitch, form) used in bringing about the message of the music? MUSICAL MAPPING: This time, let us watch/listen once more to the musical examples and try to map out using lines/graphic notation what you hear. You may focus on a particular musical element as you listen (vocal tone, melodic line, rhythm of the song, thick or thin texture of the music). Write your map on the boxes below. You may add additional boxes per song.

Watch videos of the said vocal examples but this time, have the students map out what they hear using the musical map per song. 5. Group the students into ten per group. Have them read the articles on the vocal music of Mindanao by Maceda, Dioquino, Santos or Brandeis. As a group, complete the concept map using information and insights understood from the readings. Discuss the students answers to the guide questions. The music may be played once more after all the questions have been answered.

6. Group Singing: With their existing groups, have the students select one song from the resource videos (UNESCO, Brandeis, etc.) and to study the song in terms of its musical and socio-cultural characteristics. Give time for practice. 7. Remind the students of the rubrics for performance. Have the students perform their interpretation of any vocal excerpt from Mindanao.
