This afternoon we learned about music and some people were on the instrument and some on chromebooks.
People on chromebooks had to make up their own dance music.
Here is a link that we worked on called Button Beats
People on instruments had to play on keyboards,flute,voilin and lots of other instruments.
Today we were looking (very briefly) at the history of audio technology and how we listen to music. We were also trying to make links between music and art. We started the lesson with the question:
‘Is music art?’
What do you think? Some of the children came up with their own ideas.
We then explored vinyl albums and singles. Why do people still like them? Some people even prefer them to mp3 players. Why is this?
Listening to vinyl records
Finally we looked at bands who had fantastic cover-art on the albums, and tried to recreate our own.
They are still a work in progress but we will add pictures as soon as we can!
