CES students learn about Native American musical instruments

Campbellsville Elementary School students recently learned all about Native American musical instruments, and then made one of their own.

 

Campbellsville University music education student Carolyn Meador – who did her student teaching at CES with music teacher Cyndi Chadwick – recently told students about Native American symbols and instruments they frequently play.

 

Students learned about the flute, apache violin and how Native Americans used animal skin, bones, wood, shells, gourds, rocks and seeds to make music.

 

As an activity, students used a water bottle to make a drum rattle. They decorated construction paper with Native American symbols and then attached it to the bottle.

 

After adding beans to the bottle, students had their very own instrument.
