IRC Improv Night had Improv Troupe on Stage B and Grades 3-6 classes performing Music Improv on Stage A. The students wrote all the music, but none was written down. There was an iPad DJ, a student conductor, graphic scores, music to silent acting, and many more creative, brave ideas. Well done, team!
IRC Improv Night featured the Improv Troupe and they were brilliant. We also performed this past week at ArtsFest. Here are some pics of the students in action….
Grade 2 and 2/3 parents, I am sorry for the squeaks and noise but your children are reading music! And owning it.
Contemplating composition while others practise Hot Cross Buns.
For the IRC carol sing-a-long/PJ Day, Room 204 composed and performed their four-part ostinato in a jazz carol arrangement. Room 206 taught the school to sing “Sing Noel” and accompanied us on mallet instrument.
Mr. Friesen, a music tech and composition guru, came in from the TDSB board office to help us with our GarageBand project. In December, Chris Thornborrow, the composer for this project, also came to work with us. Lucky!
Guitar Club ready to perform at the I.R.C. Carol Sing-a-long. We rocked. Just in case you’re wondering, it was pajamas day.
There are no stated learning objectives in the keyboard corner. Each student gets solo creative time. It’s also a great place to chill out after a tumultuous recess.
