Glimpse of music class

Glimpse of music class

Dear parent,

Students are learning the pentatonic scale in UOI notation system. In which they are learning “saragam” of Raga Durga. Students are also learning synchronization in which they have to sing by showing action of taal syllable, on hand.

Students also learnt some new terms/vocabulary and signs of the Indian traditional notation system such as Sthayi, Antara, Aakar, Pentatonic scale-odav odav gate, forget shower, etc. Students also reflected on their understanding by answering the questions in their reflection booklet. During the integration with signs and symbols students explored and gained knowledge of “Rhythmic ostinato”( Non traditional notation system). Students enjoyed playing instruments during this learning engagement.

Students are showing enthusiasm to learn indian classical music.

Note: Kindly go through the blog post regularly and encourage your child to practice the Saragam at home. Sharing some glimpses of music class.

Glimpse of music class

Glimpse of music class

Dear parent,

Students learnt to maintain the rhythm by counting the beats while singing. They have also learnt the basic element “Pitch” (high pitch and low pitch).

Most of the students are able to identify the tempo (fast and slow) and pitch (High and low) of songs. Students are learning Gujarati children song “Aa saghla phholon ne kahi do”. You can refer this link for audio and lyrics of the song –  http://tahuko.com/?p=789

Students are enjoying body movement and expression along with the singing .

Kindly go through the blog post regularly and encourage your child to practice the songs.

For lyrics of action song “Lambi dadhi wala bauna” and African song, you can refer the blog post .

Sharing some glimpses of music class.
