March 2020 MUSIC NOTES
Welcome to the homepage of Goddard Issaquah! We are so excited to share with you what’s happening this month in music.
Theme: Latin America
This month we are taking a musical journey south to Latin America! We will be listening to traditional music while we learn basic dance steps like the salsa, and learning basic rhythms like the son and rumba clave beats. We’ll explore instruments from all around the region and learn how they have been made and played throughout history.
Class Instruments: Castanets and claves
Sharing Instruments: Maraca, rainstick and conga drum
Activity for home: One of my favorite Latin American recordings for the whole family is Putumayo Kids’ Latin Playground. Turn it on and get ready to dance, drum or sing along all month long!
