1. Virtual Percussion

Have a play with the virtual boomwhackers on the Musick8 website...

Play the virtual boomwhackers now...

Now you've become familiar with how they work, open the document attached below so you can play along to Somewhere Over the Rainbow – the song that has been dedicated to the workers in the NHS.

We'd love to see the work you've done! Head over to our Facebook Page to send us a message or use this direct link to our messenger and share your pictures and videos. We'll try to reply to all messages, and will choose some examples to share with our followers. 


2. Lego rhythms...

Following on from our Rhythm Reading excercise last week, here's another great video teaching you how to read rhythms using Ta and Ti Ti.

You don't have to use lego for this to work, you can use whatever you have in your home. 

Keep creating...

Now you've watched the video, create some of your own rhythms and see if you can play them all. You could get someone in your family to help, and play along with the Kitchen Utensil Band from week 1!
