Lennon, McCartney and You Guys – An AP Music Theory Lesson

Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on May 5, 2018

Published on Jan 1, 2013

Produced by The New York State Student Music Association, Mr. Doyle’s sample lesson plan invites you into his high school music theory (AP) classroom for a lesson on chordal root movements. Using the harmonic plan from Paul McCartney’s, “Oh Darling” as a four-part Roman numeral exercise, the students explore voice leading, non-harmonic tones, sight-singing, and finally backing up the Beatles original recording with their harmonization. Music theory teachers are encouraged to produce their own original video lesson demonstrations and submit them to the editors of the new, Journal of Music Theory Pedagogy Online (www.jmtp.ou.edu). This exciting website is a valuable resource to all music theory educators.
