I hope you all enjoyed your vacation and are feeling refreshed, re-energized, and ready to continue our journey of exploring music together! Ifeel like it’s been a while since we’ve updated you about the happenings in room 100! Boy! We’ve sure been busy!
This week we learned a song called “Take Time in Life”, from the country of Liberia, that incorporated movement, clapping, singing, and a six part percussion ensemble! We learned about lyrics and how lyrics help the song have a special meaning. The message of “Take Time in Life” was to slow down and appreciate the small things in life because time passes by so quickly. We also learned the job of being a performer! Even if we aren’t feeling well or having a great day, our job as the performer is to show the audience how much fun we are having by smiling and being energetic in our performance! This was a little bit of a challenge for us, but we got it!
