Music Mondays with Mr. Brown

Getting back into the swing of things these last few weeks has been great. In music, we will be focusing on rhythm and drumming to start the year. Last Monday, we explored some of the possibilities the drum set gave us as musicians. We took turns playing different rhythm patterns in groups of two and three to examine the feelings these patterns create. We will continue rhythm practicing throughout the year as it is one of the most important aspects of music. In the future we will also be exploring the possibilities of the keyboard. We acquired some keyboards that work with computers so students will be able to record their playing this year. I am very excited to share this with the students! We will be using the keyboards to learn more about music and create our own songs. We will do our best to keep DES rocking! Mr. Brown
