Maitland Area School

Maitland | Yorke Peninsula | South Australia

The Kindy children visited again on Tuesday for a music lesson. We played with lots of different shakers and 'clackers' and learned their proper names: maracas and castanets. We danced to music with a strong beat and found that some music has no beat - and it's very hard to move to!

The children also programmed a drum machine to play a beat and saw how a metronome can be used to set a speed (or tempo) for music. We had a great time that finished too quickly; see you all again for your next visit in Term 2.
