This year, Grade 6 students will spend the first part of the year’s Music classes participating in a Rhythm Circle. Guided by Elizabeth, the members of the group join together in creating group rhythms. If you’ve been in a Drum Circle, it’s the same thing! Since the Grade 6 students will get to play all types of un-pitched percussion instruments, they decided the name Rhythm Circle meant more to them.

Our Rhythm Circle is a great time for these students to hone the rhythms patterns they’ve learned in theory, as well as cement the concepts of meter and tempo. This is a time for play and freedom. There is no desired outcome, no right or wrong. There is only experimentation, team work, and release.
