Rhythm & Percussion with Sound Math™
Jan 29 - Mar 18
Thurgood Marshall Elementary
From Jan 29, 2016 to Mar 18, 2016
DESCRIPTIONStudents learn how to understand and master musical rhythm in a group setting. Students play on beautiful hand-percussion instruments like djembe, cajon, bongos, shakers, and darbuka. We have an outstanding music educator that has trained in our unique method. We use a visualization system called The Rhythm Compass™ that makes understanding rhythmic relationships fun and easy. The mathematics of rhythm are counting and cardinality, operations, ratios, and algebraic thinking. Enhance your math and enhance your groove! Our program is aligned with Common Core Mathematics Standards. Instructor: James Borchers Friday Class Dates: 1/29, 2/5, 2/12, 2/19, 2/26, 3/4, 3/11, 3/18.
