Rhythmic Performances

Skiddaw class have been music mad this week. We have learnt the difference between rhythms and beats playing drums and other percussion instruments. We know the names of many obscure instruments in our collection as well as how to play them properly.

We have played as a whole class band and then worked in smaller groups choosing to perform our piece in binary (AB) form or ternary (ABA) form. After reviewing videos of our first performances we discussed how we could improve, such as positioning ourselves in a group so we can all see each other and tips and techniques about how to keep us all in time.

Here are our final performances – can you spot if they are binary or ternary form?
