Ditto from last week! Everyone is participating and really sounding awesome when singing and playing! It has been another marvelous musical week!
Is Orffing a word? All classes (K-4) have been really Orffing it up and having a blast! For example, the third/fourth graders worked on layering 4 different parts as an accompaniment to a song they have learned ( glockenspiel, alto xylophone, woodblock, bass xylophone). All classes are discovering how complex and fun it is to stay together with 9-12 students playing at the same time! The choir is really sounding fantastic!
Most eighth graders are now learning the notes on 2 strings of the guitar or have moved on to playing chords. It has truly been a productive week!
We are starting off the new year learning new songs and learning new skills! The ECE students are learning new action and counting songs. All grade levels (K-4) are learning songs that have Orff accompaniments. The sixth grade choir is working diligently on singing two-part harmony. The eighth graders are reading music as they play guitars.
