Campbellsville Elementary School students recently learned to play chords.
In Cyndi Chadwick’s music class, students are learning about rhythm and how to keep a steady beat.
Students were recently introduced to boom whackers during a discussion about pitch and how different notes combine to make a chord.
Boom whackers are tuned percussion tubes that students use to hit against each objects to create sounds. Kindergarteners used the boom whackers to play a song together.
They also used other objects, such as tennis balls and scarves, to keep a beat.
