On any given day, if you were to walk into the lower school music room during class, you’d probably see students collaboratively singing, moving, composing, playing drums, xylophones, shakers, triangles and all sorts of percussion instruments. Joyful music making together is a hallmark of the music program at Latin.
So what better way to kick off the remote music learning series, than to recreate the joy of music-making together with families. The instrument choices were boxes (drums), cutlery, lids, pots/pans/cans or other items that could creatively be turned into musical instruments. Everyone could join the band – pets, babies, toddlers, younger and older siblings, grown-ups. There is a wonderful saying, "Art decorates space; and music decorates time." Mrs. Friedman, Mrs. Durairaj, Ms. Martinez and Ms. Baker are working with lower school students and families to make the most of their space and time with creative ideas.
