Kindergarten Week 2 -- Shakers and Patterns
This week in Kindergarten music the students completed the shakers we made last week and compared them with other shaker instruments from around the world. We also talked about patterns as they apply to music -- not just the visual patterns on the instruments themselves, but the way patterns are used to organize music.
We also used the shakers to perform a cool train song from Zimbabwe, "Mbombera." And the shakers weren't our only accompaniment. Check out Mr. Adams sitting in on xylophone!
