Project 7
Listening Center
The listening center will serve a great purpose
Students will explore the answers to these
questions through the lens of World
Music. Practicing with the small hand the
grant, the students will have a chance to
actually hold an instrument, and play one,
something many have never done before!
Having these materials will advance our
rhythmic studies, allowing them to practice
different rhythms on the instruments, and
even create small ensembles with their
own composed rhythms. In addition, these
instruments will be discussed in World
Music; with the instruments they can play
different types of music and better
appreciate and understand it. This will
help immensely in their journeys as Music
Makers, opening the door to creativity and
imagination
