News from the Music Room
The Kindergarten classes have been exploring high and low pitches in music and where they are located on barred instruments such as xylophones, metallophones, and glockenspiels. They have discovered that the longer the bar the lower the sound and the shorter the bar the higher the sound. Working together in pairs they played for each other the lowest to highest bars and then the highest to lowest bars. After that they played the lowest bar and the highest bar. They also worked together with resonator bells and steps to put them in the correct order from lowest to highest. The kids had a lot of fun and did a great job with this “hands-on” activity.
