My Grade 2 class begged to make their own bands. I’ve made quiet suggestions as THEY chose groups, chose instruments, switched instruments, came up with a rhythmic groove, chose a band name, switched instruments again, decided on solos, and then chose a beginning and end to their piece. Serious jamming at age 7/8!
The IRC Choir, Guitar Club, and Gr. 5/6 French classes performed beautifully with the O’Shraves band…and it was fun!
An enjoyable field trip to Bloor Cl. to hear the music we wrote on garageband be performed by ensemble, Continuum. Our video rocked too.
They’re teaching me and I’m teaching them. There’s so much to learn using music apps in music class!
