This week, the 2nd graders have been working hard to learn new chords and strumming patterns on the ukulele. Below are three videos that we have been using to put our new skills and knowledge into a musical context!
Last week in music class, the 2nd & 3rd grade classes composed their own songs! We used a familiar chant (“Pumpkin Patch”) and added tonal patterns to the existing words & rhythms to create our own melodies. Each class also got to decide what tonality their song would be in (Major or minor).
