THANK YOU, CAROLA, for recording our voices, enriching our ears, and moving our bodies - Joplin and Bach on the piano!
What fun we had today with Carola - experimenting with our voices (using Garage Band) and finely listening to sounds with a professional microphone. We also played games while being introduced to the music of Scott Joplin and listening to Bach (Rose's favorite).
DESIGNING INSTRUMENTS WITH INSPIRATION FROM COMMUNITY FORKLIFT OBJECTS (see photos below of Jay and Mac). At morning meeting:
Alex - Let's make a giant instrument we can all play. Maybe Rainey and Brown Rooms. All the teachers.
Mac - All the classrooms.
Hadley - Even Margaret.
Willa - Even Charlie.
Lucy - Even Jack.
Some designs: (left) Mac's design for an instrument that shakes, using two PVC pipes; (right) Lila's design for a microphone, maybe inspired by Carola?!
