Step 1: Using the math rules times table patterns. ask students to identify what patterns they see in each column. Then, compare the pattern from the first table with that of the second table. How are they related?
Step 2: Ask students to attach letters to each part of the pattern in their times tables, just like we did at the beginning of the lesson. These “times table patterns” will become the basis for creating their own 12-bar blues composition.
Step 3: Using this worksheet, students will create a 12-bar blues composition from the pattern found in their math times table. For each letter, students will assign a chord (for example: A = I chord, B = IV chord).
Step 4: Using the chart they created for their 12-bar blues, students can play their composition using the guitar drag-and-drop player OR using a musical instrument.
