Discovering Pitch With Water
The purpose of the lesson is to develop an awareness of pitch and to develop auditory discrimination. The child pours water into the jars at the designated levels to create the different pitches and uses the mallet to create sound. Present the lesson only after the child is successful with the lesson: Pouring to a Line. This was my initial lesson with pitch, I did not discuss high/low at this point, however, that is how I presented it on the tray. I think after it is used a few times I will discuss pitch levels. This lesson could be developed even more with an older child using more glasses/jars and putting in order or experimenting with water levels and no line.
