Year 7 “Drumbeats”
On Wednesday, 14 June, Year 7 were treated to the sounds of hundreds of drums during their incursion by the Drum Beats team made up of instructors Thiass and Athil. The students were enthusiastic to learn all about the concepts of music with a particular focus on rhythm.
Here are some student thoughts from the day:
“It taught us about rhythm and how we all have a unique sound” – Luna Pandiella-Mcleod
“It taught us to engage as a group and collaborate musically, and we had to make sure that we listened very closely to the instructions of Thiass and Athil” – Tara Winton
“We had fun learning a new spin on the Chicken Dance and learning how to drum in many different ways” – Kylah Foon
