音乐艺术Newsletter:创意造就无限未来

发布时间:2021-04-12 | 浏览次数:

“音乐与艺术不在于直接描绘形象,而在于把心灵置于这些对象之中,并将心灵置于所创造的情绪之中。”

  

音乐与艺术给我们的世界带来了无穷魅力,赋予了我们许多难以忘怀的身临其境的体验。近日,北京海淀凯文学校音乐组与艺术组联合推出第一期Newsletter(简讯),以展示学校音乐课与艺术课的课程内容、实践项目、学生作品等,让家长们更了解音乐与艺术课程架构,推动家校沟通。

  

现在,让我们来看看音乐课&艺术课三月份的Newsletter吧!

  

合唱 Choir

  

本学期,海淀凯文中学部合唱团有一个良好的开端,同学们都在为音乐会的演出而努力,并参与到各种各样的作曲活动中。

Choir is off to a great start in the second semester! The students are working hard towards their Summer Concert and are taking part in various composition activities.

  

六年级学生正在学习音高、发声和基本技巧,这巩固了他们在小学合唱课学习的内容,也让他们为随着年龄的增长而发生的声音变化做好准备。

Students in Grade 6 are working on pitch, intonation, and basic techniques in 1 or 2 part singing. This solidifies their learning from Primary School and also prepares them for the many changes that are occurring to their voices as they get older.

  

七年级55名学生被分成两个合唱组。两个合唱组之间互相学习,努力提高音乐技巧、发声和声乐能力。七年级合唱团的教师是王蓓和Christina Schirf。

Students in Grade 7 (all 55 of them!) have been divided into two Choirs. Each Choir will be modeled after the other and both choirs will work to improve musicianship, intonation, and vocal abilities. Ms. Wang Bei and Ms. Christina Schirf are both Choir teachers for Grade 7 Choir.

  

八年级60名学生也被分为两个合唱组。每个合唱组都致力于三段式和声和中英文演唱,同学们在音乐中成长时,也对音乐有了更深的理解。

八年级合唱团的教师是张汝一(Cherry)和Christina Schirf,张汝一(Cherry)老师正在带领八年级学生表演三段式合唱A Whole New World,其中包括声乐技巧和团队合作能力的提升。Christina Schirf正在带领学生改编歌曲,比如改编英国摇滚乐队Coldplay的歌曲Viva la Vida。

In Grade 8 Choir (which is 60 students!), students have also been divided into two Choirs. The two teachers for Grade 8 Choir are Ms. Cherry Zhang and Ms. Christina Schirf. Each choir is working towards 3-part harmony and singing in both English and Chinese to facilitate growth and understand of music and its meaning. Ms. Cherry’s Choir is performing is presently working on three-part-chorus A Whole New World that will involve singing skills and teamwork. Ms. Christina’s Choir is working on creating melody and harmony with Viva La Vida by ColdPlay.

 

九年级合唱团由Christina Schirf带领,同学们在努力学习作曲与三段式和声。高中合唱团的独特之处在于他们成熟的嗓音以及他们与难度更高的音乐之间的紧密联系,他们的声乐技巧与对音乐的理解提高了表演水平。他们将在夏季音乐会中演唱三首歌曲,分别是Ad Astra, Country Roads和The Sound of Silence。

In Grade 9 Choir, led by Ms. Christina Schirf, students are working towards meaningful composition and also 3 part harmony. What sets the High School choir apart from the younger choir is their mature voices and their strong bond as they work towards more difficult music that stretches their skill and understand to a higher level of performance and excellence. Their 3 pieces for their concert are Ad Astra, a piece in Latin, Country Roads, and the Sound of Silence.

  

中学部所有的合唱团都在学习基本的音乐理论,每个班级也都在做不同的项目去锻炼表演技巧,并将其运用到创作中。上学期,同学们用五声音阶(do,re,mi,sol,la)来创作歌曲,这让大家联想到中国传统民歌。学生在创作歌曲、添加英文歌词时很开心:

All Choirs are learning basic music theory. Each class is working on projects of different sizes to take their Performance Skills and apply them to C reation. Last semester, students worked on songs in a Pentatonic scale (do, re, mi, sol, la), which is reminiscent of traditional Chinese folk songs. Students had fun creating these songs and added lyrics in English:

  

九年级Jessica Hu同学创作的Chocolate Forever,旋律由五声音阶组成

“Chocolate Forever” by Jessica Hu, Grade 9, melody composed with Pentatonic Scale.


学生使用MuseCore软件去创作乐曲与和声

Students using MuseScore software to create Diatonic Compositions with melody and harmony.


六年级学生利用和弦级数公式来创作不同的作品

Student work from Grade 6 that uses a Chord Progression Formula to create different compositions.

  

给家长的Tips:

所有学生都需要使用APP来完成作品(app.musicprodigy.com),这个APP有语音识别技术,可以提取学生唱歌的声音,并判断学生的音准。

学生每周有2个在线作业。

在课堂上,学生的良好表现也会得到相应的分数。

由于人们的声音一直在发展在变化,我们鼓励学生试错,并从中吸取教训。这是我们探索和改进的唯一途径。

Parent Reminders:

All students are to complete homework using the software app app.musicprodigy.com. This app uses voice recognition technology to pick up the students singing voice and decided it the student is singing correct or incorrect notes. Students have 2 assignments per week online! Students also recieve points for Effort during class. Since the human voice is always developing, we encourage students to make mistakes, but to also learn from them. This is the only way we explore and improve!


钢琴 Piano

  

六、七、八、九年级的学生都在为音乐会演出而努力,他们也在学习和弦琶音技巧(快速连续弹出和弦的音符)。

All 6th, 7th, 8th,9th grade piano students are learning music for the Spring Concert and technique skills for Arpeggios.

  

音乐教师李倩(Angelika)授课中


乐队 Band

  

G6&G7

  

六年级、七年级学生正在努力完成他们乐器的前六个音符。每种乐器演奏的第一个音符都有所不同,每种乐器也都有其特殊的挑战。这六个音符有许多不同的模式和风格,因此,学生可以在所有不同类型的音乐中自如地演奏。

Our 6th/7th grade group is working to complete the first 6 notes on their instruments. These first notes are played different for every instrument, and each instrument has its specific challenges. These 6 notes are practiced in many different patterns and styles so students can be comfortable playing them in all different types of music. We will add on new notes very soon.

  

大家也在为即将到来的音乐会做准备。目前,同学们正在创作一首歌曲,名为The Voyage of the Dragon Armada——郑和下西洋的探险经历。学生在这首歌中扮演不同的角色,每一名同学都在努力成为独立的音乐家,为共同的作品而付出。

We are also working on articulation, meaning how and when to use the tongue to begin each note played. We are also preparing for our upcoming concerts, and are currently working on a large group song called The Voyage of the Dragon Armada, The Maritime Expeditions of Zhèng Hé, the ancient explorer and diplomat. All students play different parts in this song, so students must work to be strong, independent musicians for all the different pieces to fit together. We will be choosing and preparing more pieces soon.

  

学生也在准备为小伙伴表演歌曲,他们可能会有胆怯,但宝贵的经历对于年轻的音乐家来说至关重要。

We have also had students prepare their own songs and perform for their classmates. This can be scary, but it is valuable experience as a young musician, and valuable experience as a young person.

G8&G9

  

八年级、九年级学生学习的技能与六年级、七年级学生相似,但更高级。这些学生在乐器上已至少学习了一个八度音阶,现在,他们正在使用全音域指法图表。同学们也在以各种形式使用这些音符,让自己在演奏乐器时更熟练。同学们开始学习音阶,熟悉乐器上的每个音符和指法。

8th and 9th Grade are working on similar skills as 6/7, but more advanced. These students have learned at least one octave on their instruments, and they are using a full-range fingering chart. We are also using these notes in various patters to become more adept and advanced on our instruments. We are beginning to learn our chromatic scale, getting familiar with every note and fingering on the instrument, from the bottom to the top.

  

同学们也在为即将到来的音乐会做准备,大家在学习Tambora (William Owens)。学生正在运用在基础练习中所学的技巧,如音调、手的位置、姿势、空中支撑、手指技巧等,以更快地接受、学习、吸收这些新的音乐知识。

We are also preparing music for our upcoming concert, but this music is also more advanced. These students are working to learn “Tambora!” by William Owens. Students are applying the skills learned in our fundamental practice (tone, hand position, posture, air support, finger technique) to learn these new musics more quickly.

  

音乐教师Brian Gay授课中

  

给家长的Tips:

请鼓励学生每天至少练习5分钟,年级更高一些的学生需要练习更长时间。您可以请学生为您演奏,音乐成长是一个漫长的过程,所以现阶段,他们的演奏听起来可能还没有那么专业。(学生在班级中去练习演奏就像在其他课上学习一样,希望学生也能在家中多练习演奏)

在Canvas上,学生定期在演奏时录制视频进行表演测试。请家长确保学生保持练习,以让他们在这些测试中能有更好地成绩,并准时提交录制视频。

学生需要带上他们的乐器、乐器配件、音乐文件夹和铅笔来上课。

  

Parent Reminders:

1. Please encourage your student to practice at least 5 minutes a day. Older students should do more. Ask them to play for you, and remember, our music growth is a long process, so they likely won't sound like a professional yet!

a. Practicing in our class is like studying in other classes. We want to have daily reinforcement of our class at home whenever possible.

2. Students are given regular video performance tests through Canvas, please make sure your students are practicing so they can do well on these playing tests, and please make sure they turn them in on time.

3. Students are expected to bring their instrument and instrument accessories, their music folder, and a pencil to class each day.

  

学生练习中


弦乐 String

  

六、七、八、九年级的学生正在做一个项目,他们需要创作八小节乐曲。同时,他们也在为即将到来的音乐会做准备。

All 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th grade string students are presently working on a writing project that will involve creating their own 8 measure composition. They are learning music for the Spring Concert.

高中绘画课程、水彩和亚克力课程

  

高中部绘画课程I、绘画课程II、水彩和亚克力课程由Robert Joaquin授课。

绘画与色彩有着紧密联系,对于一个真正的画家的考验,即是能否有能力创作出任何可以想象到的色彩。在开始绘画之前,学生需要了解色彩不同层次的关系、如何丰富单一色调等,这都需要的大量的练习。

Painting is color production. A painter needs to capture a scene in all its glory-vibrant colors.

Reason why painting students in KWA are immersed in color production drills. They need to deliver on color production drills satisfactorily if not awesomely before they can proceed to painting.


  

随后,学生绘画的是四个艺术运动大师画家的作品,分别是后印象派、表现主义、象征主义和立体派,去体验梵高、高更、塞尚、莫奈、马奈、克里姆特等画家的艺术形式,以此掌握视觉语言,以多种风格的组合来描绘他们想表达的意思。

Upon surviving the drills, they will be painting the works of the master painters from four art movements – Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, Expressionist, Symbolist and Cubist. Doable styles they must do if only to experience lifetimes of technical and conceptual discoveries by well-known painters like Van Gogh, Gaugin, Cezanne, Monet, Manet, Klimt among others. Upon acquiring technical and conceptual proficiency in the visual language that painting essentially is, they will paint what they want to paint in a style or combination of styles they feel most comfortable with.


  

学生也会学习如何选择质量好的材料,如画刷、颜料、帆布等以及如何正确地使用他们。这些都是完整的绘画创作过程,从艺术准备、构思组织、实际绘画到安排布展,学生将有不一样的体验。

Students are also taught how to choose quality materials like paints, canvas, brushes and peripherals and how to use them properly, economically and wisely. To enable students to experience the creative process in its entirety, from art production, preparation, actual painting, to conceptualizing, organizing, finding a venue, installing and promoting an exhibition, interested students get a 'walk-through-the process' that may wind up in a sumptuous Dutch treat.



学生感言

  

十一年级黄兆基(Lucio)同学说:“我从学校所开设的不同艺术课中收获许多。在绘画课上,老师给我留出了充足的时间去练习绘画技巧,提高我对铅笔、画笔和水彩笔的掌握。我也学会了选择色彩组合,让我的作品更好看。当我绘画时,老师总会给我提出建议,指出我作品的问题所在。经过反复的修改和努力,我的绘画技巧有了很大的提高。”

"All the art courses offered by the school have taught me a lot. In the Drawing and Painting courses, teacher gave me a lot of time to learn Drawing/Painting skills and improve my control of pencils, brushes and watercolors. I also learned to choose correct color combination of my works to make them more beautiful. When I was drawing/painting, my teacher would give advice from time to time and point out where the problem of my works. After the repeated corrections and the hard working, my drawing/painting techniques had a huge improvement."

  

“设计与工艺课程更注重培养我们的创造力和动手能力,老师通过有趣的话题,激发我们的想象力,让想法落到实处。同时,老师支持原创性,而不是让我们盲目地模仿他人作品。”

"Design&Craft is different from the previous two courses in that the Design&Craft course focuses more on developing students' creativity and manual skills. Teachers will provide interesting topics to stimulate students' creativity and imagination. It also teaches students how to make their thinking become real, and at the same time the teacher supports originality rather than making students blindly imitate others' works."

高中AP设计、AP工作室艺术

  

高中部AP设计(Design)、AP工作室艺术(Studio Art)由Elizabeth Lasure授课。

AP设计是一门为对设计感兴趣的学生新开设的课程,课程以设计思维为基础。设计思维是创造性解决问题的过程,通过设计来更好地解决问题。问题发现也是设计思维的重要组成部分,解决一个错误的问题可以为更好的设计带来新的解决方案。

This is a new course for advanced design students. The curriculum is based on design thinking. Design thinking is a process for creative problem solving. Design thinking is concerned with solving problems through design. Problem finding is also an important part of design thinking. After all, working on a wrong problem can bring any solution for better life design!


设计思维过程

  

目前,学生正在研究和设计雕塑头饰,他们所面临双重设计问题:其一,服饰在世界各国的仪式中扮演什么角色?怎样去融合这些想法?其二,纸袋能做什么?

Currently, students are researching and designing sculptural headdresses. The design problem they were given is twofold. 1. What role does dress/adornment play in ritual practice around the world? How and why will you adapt these ideas? 2. What can be made of a paper bag?

在AP工作室艺术课程中,学生需要在学校社区内推广和发展公共艺术项目。为了实现这一目标,“Invention Lab”壁画项目应运而生。在与小学科学课程组长Kevin Eiker合作中,同学们展示了他们的设计方案(利用Photoshop),然后与Kevin Eiker讨论交流想法。“Invention Lab”壁画于去年11月开工,2021年3月完工,这幅壁画位于小学楼三层。

As part of the Advanced Studio arts curriculum, students are required to promote and develop public art projects within the school community. In pursuit of this objective, the 'Invention Lab' mural was created. In a collaborative effort with Kevin Eiker, Primary Science Curriculum Coordinator, students presented their design the plan (developed on PhotoShop program), then discussed changes and ideas from Kevin. Work began in November was completed this month. The 5'x8' mural is located on the 3rd floor of the Primary building just next to the Administration Offices.

初中艺术课

  

初中艺术课由Kambiz Taherabadi授课。

七年级、八年级学生在艺术课中通过绘画、排版和色彩等艺术形式来表达自己的观点。本学期一开始,同学们就进行了合作展示:什么是艺术?展示结束后,学生还参加了简短的课堂问答环节。这项活动让学生在讨论观点时更加自信,富有表现力,并让他人了解自己的观点。

Semester 2 has started off great for both G7 & G8 art students. The students from both G7 & G8 have been working collaboratively on a mini presentation discussing the opening statement 'What Is Art?'.

Students had the opportunity to express their views and opinions through many artistic disciplines like; drawing, typography, and colour.

Students then presented their work to the teacher and the class. After each presentation the students would participate in a short Q&A from the class.

This activity helped the students to be more confident, expressive and open-minded when discussing someone else's opinions.

  

七、八年级学生展示


接下来,学生将学习7种艺术元素(线条、空间、纹理、形状、形式、色彩、明度)和7种设计原则(强调、运动、对比、节奏、统一、平衡、图案)。学生通过一系列工作坊活动和情境研究学习来探索每一种艺术元素和设计原则。

Students will be introduction to 7 Elements of Art (Line, Space, Texture, Shape, Form, Colour, Value) and 7 Principle of Design (Emphasis, Movement, Contrast, Rhythm, Unity, Balance, Pattern). Students will explore each discipline through a range of workshops and contextual study (research).

学生需要按时将自己的艺术作业上传到Canvas系统上。

Over the semester students will be required to up load their art homework onto Canvas. Homework will be based around research questions and notes taken from class.
