A Busy Week in the Music Room

We are in week 5 of the school year and are moving along.  The music classes are talking about rhythm, singing voice, and playing instruments this week.  Here are a few of the highlights! 

The Wee Vikings (3K)

The Wee Vikings were so excited to get to use their first instruments this week!  We played a few rhythm games with the Boomwhackers.  Boomwhackers are plastic, tuned tubes.  They can be played on a hand, a knee, the floor, and even a head.  Each color of tube is a different pitch, giving us lots of opportunities for playing them in class.

Moving with the Music

In 2nd grade this week, we are working on a folk dance to the song "Seven Jumps."  This song is from Denmark.  The "jumps" are different chords that are held for different amounts of time.  Since the lengths of the notes are always different, it makes for some interesting dancing.  Here is a video of a 2nd grade class doing the "Seven Jumps" dance this week!
