Students are singing and playing the music of Stephen Foster. Stephen Foster was an early proponent of Copyright laws, so we will briefly explore how copyright laws protect American composers and arrangers. Work continues on the Contemporary Music project.
Students are learning music from the Renaissance. We are playing rhythms with drumsticks, playing the ukelele and learning about the early instruments and how they evolved into todays instruments.
Students are using the music of Africa as their source material for learning notes and songs. We are singing Take Time in Life, playing drums and piano keyboards, and learning a new body percussion.
