Campbellsville Elementary School students are learning all about African music.
In Cyndi Chadwick’s music class, students are learning about instruments used to make the music, the different styles of African music and much more.
Lindsey Wilson College education student Tyler Cook, who is Chadwick’s student teacher, is teaching the lesson.
Students also learned about polyrhythms, and how to create call and response rhythms.
To practice, students were divided into two groups and then each played their own rhythms at the same time.
After they had that down, students played their rhythms on drums.
