Session 4 AM: July 8 - July 19
Age / grade level: Grades 4-6
Teacher: Mr. Deric Whatley, B.A., M.A.
Description: What makes musical instruments work? We will explore this by discussing acoustic (the scientific study of sound) and basic building techniques. Next, as we build our instruments, we will learn to play them by studying our notes, rhythms, and other aspects of music. Then, to top it all off, we will record our performances on our new instruments.
