October Story for Music class
This has been an exciting month in the music classroom!
Some of the grade 1, 2, & 3 students had the opportunity to play the Tubano drums. We read a West African tale called “The Leopard’s Drum.” The students learned drumming patterns for each of the characters in the book, then used the drums to help tell the story. It was a blast!
The grade 4, 5, & 6 students have been working hard to prepare to sing “Al Shlosha D’Varim” for our upcoming Remembrance Day service. They learned about the meaning of the Hebrew lyrics, and also started learning about the Holocaust. The grade 4, 5, & 6 students also learned to sing Al Shlosha D’Varim at the same time as they play a beautiful part on the barred instruments (xylophones, glockenspiels, and metallophones). Your child can listen to this recording of Al Shlosha D’Varim:
