Hey Grade 3s,
What a great start to our unit, How We Express Ourselves! Groups have been chosen and you guys are starting to learn a new dance from a different culture.
If you’d like to practice at home, you can find the dance instructional videos here. The songs that we’ll dance to are:
Hora – Hava Nagila
Freestyle/Funga – Waka Waka
Waltz – Under the Bridges of Paris
Cha Cha – Smooth
Tinikling – Tinikling Music
Hula – Hukilau
Sirtaki – Zorba
Here is a link to the workshop descriptions. Read them and then fill out the form below.
Grade 5s are really starting to take their knowledge of beat and rhythm to the next level. Today, 5B and 5E had their chance to explore polyrhythms. Check them out:
For those of you who would like to practice in the summer, but forgot your music at school, look no further!
Remember: it’s not about just playing the song, we want to play it well. That means we focus on proper fingering, playing the rhythm correctly, looooong breathing (if there are no breath marks, write them in!), and tonguing the notes (almost like you’re saying “ta” before each note).
School starts again in August – and I’ll be ready to test when you are!
