Last week, two Miami University students came to first grade music class. The first graders have been learning about percussion instruments. Jake and Lovell came to show us their drums and to teach us even more about percussion. It was very, very exciting to have them visit! We learned that the snare drum has metal springs on the bottom which make the distinctive sound and that you can remove that sound any time you like. We also learned that the djembe drum can make different sounds depending on where the drum is hit.
Thank you Jake and Lovell and come back soon!
