Feedback form is now closed.
This interactive session introduces African music by means of singing, dancing, drumming, recorder and on Orff xylophones. Instruments are provided by the speaker. Participants learn two songs: One for Division 1 and the other for Division 2. A music background is not necessary for attendance and all skill levels are welcome. Demonstrations of music theory and social curricular ties are introduced for both songs, and some unique characteristics of African folk music will be discussed. Educators leave with the necessary resources (including sheet music) ready and able to teach the two songs to their own students.
