last week the 8th graders made musical composition with the ipad app called MadPad. Click here to see their work. This coming week, they will view their compositions and start creating the composition I call "Playing a Room" Where they have to make music from a room in the school, on video.
Last week students memorized their first song on the ukulele and played the chords and song Three Little Birds.
Next week we’ll continue our study of music from space, learning to play the Darth Vader theme from Star Wars, and listening to sound recorded by NASA.
We’ve continued our study of music notation by reading music and playing keyboards. We’re learning to play the song “Waltzing Matilda” and play it on the keyboards. Next week we’ll do some more drumming, hear some Australian instruments and hear music from Rolf Harris.
