Year 6CP created their own rhythm patterns to a two-bar phrase, while learning about internalising the 4/4 time signature and representing their rhythms as both graphic notation and music notation. Students then shared their individual ostinati with other students to create a classroom polyrhythm.
This week, 2HM were learning how to locate the middle C using two black keys as reference. Once located, they were working on playing the notes of the C major scale whilst saying the note names do, re, mi, etc.
This week Year 3 students were introduced to the audio network's grouping function, which enables connection between keyboards across a classroom, such as for ensemble work and more targeted teacher feedback. Importantly, students also revisited expectations and routines regarding the proper care and usage of the network equipment. It was a wonderful way for the children to clearly listen to the piano work of their fellow classmates.
