"wake Me Up"

Piano
1. Have students sing the chorus of WMU once through, without
the use of music.
2. then, students turn to page 9/10 of the music and read the
music (the chorus) up until ms. 85

know I was lost" they sing 2 more times
b, Demonstrate how it sounds (the same, besides the last
"lost")
c. Have students sing from ms. 81-87
3. Teach part 2 the harmony on "lost" at the end.
a. Have students echo the sound modeled by the teacher.
b. identify how many times we sing lost

4. Teach part 1 the harmony of "lost" at the end.

b. Review m47 via echo singing and modeling
c. Teach ms 47 thru 53
8. Identify rests before "and love is the prize"
Students should be able to identify that beat on consists of a
quarter rest and beat two has a rest on beat 2 and the "and" + of
beat 2 is sounded. Student should write 1 2 + 3 4 + Spot check
around the room (individual assessment)

Students at the end will perform the entirety of WMU from


beginning to end. Then, via a group discussion, understand the
amount of time it took to learn this piece of music. When was the
piece started? Today would be the day they officially learned
everything with confidence. How do they feel now at the end of the
4 week span of learning the piece? How valuable is rehearsal time
for learning a concert?
