GRADE 5 and GRADE 6 Students in grades 5 and 6 are exploring rhythms of the world. We have been playing African drums in our drum circle using World Drumming by Will Schmitt. Student leaders take turns leading the circle with varied rhythms. Music of Africa and Jamaica will be discussed and examined. We will sing songs and play rhythmic and melodic instruments.
Grade 5 and 6 will be working on their GARAGE BAND PROJECT after the spring break. Students will create a poem or rap about the environment (EARTH DAY) or their favorite activity/sport/friend. They will then add a musical soundtrack to accompany their words.
