Winter 2 - week 4 - mini maestros
Today we expanded our rhythm knowledge and learned about Scott Joplin and Ragtime music.
Performance: Sweet Beets & Cups
We warmed up with Sweet Beets on percussion instruments or Boomwhackers of our choice. We then played new rhythm games with cups.
Repertoire: Scott Joplin, Ragtime
We learned about the composer Scott Joplin, the King of Ragtime music. We listened to 4 of his songs and filled in a listening map on them.
Instead of many videos, I recommend finding a few recordings of Scott Joplin pieces to listen to while in the car! They are very enjoyable to hear and hum along to.
We learned about how most wind instruments use a reed to make sound. The clarinet uses a single reed and is made of wood or plastic with silver keys. We listened to the clarinet and gently discovered it.
