5th Grade "Band" Project
This month, our fifth graders have been learning a piece of instrumental music by Carl Orff! After learning each layer of music and rehearsing it in as a class ensemble, the students broke up in to small ensembles, or "Bands". In their band (which, their band names were very creative!), they decided how they would layer-in each part. Each band had a band leader who would "count-off" using a four meter, and off they went! This picture is an action shot of a group of boys working diligently to prepare for their performance! Problem solving, independence, working as a team, leadership, focus, and "doing your part"- these are ALL essential citizenship skills that music teaches!
Music is so ridiculously amazing. We are so privileged to be able to study and advance in it!
