Wednesday brought a new excitement - beginning guitar! We spent our time together on Wednesday checking out a PowerPoint presentation about different types of guitars, what they look like, what they sound like, and the different parts of the guitar. To see the presentation that we viewed in class, click HERE. We had fun labeling the parts of the guitar on the SmartBoard and even more fun pointing to the parts of the guitar on our very own instruments.
On Thursday, because of the early release, only the 5th period Exploring Music class met. We spent some time reviewing how to read musical notation. We practiced reading some music rhythm reading by matching some names of soda and candies to the musical notation they belonged with. We even did a little bit of matching with ice cream flavors! Check out some pictures of us learning new rhythms below!
