Singing, Playing, Rhythm, and Movement are all elements of a typical music class at Rohan Woods School. We’re using our drums, xylophones, metallophones, and glockenspiels as well as other percussion instruments to create and experience music!
Have you ever told a story using pitched and non-pitched instruments? In our lower level classes (kindergarten, first and second grades) we use instruments to accent stories, giving students a chance to interpret, create, and perform on musical instruments.
First and Second Graders are learning some musical rounds as an introduction to harmony. We’re also playing with tongue twisters.
If a pentagon is a five-sided figure, what is a pentatonic scale? Our middle and upper level students know the answer is a five-tone scale.
We are using the removable bars on our Orff instruments (xylophones, metallophones, glockenspiels) to create pentatonic scales and experience creating and performing music using only five tones.
