Organize and develop artistic ideas and work.
Synthesize and relate knowledge and personal experience to create art.
Students use hand held percussion instruments and/or body percussion, applying the elements of music to interpret and present their ideas.
Students can explore a variety of sounds and instruments through free-form noise making, or using steady beats. Direct students to explore simple variations (e.g. loud and soft, fast and slow).
Provide learners with the challenge of creating syncopated rhythms. Students can work together to sequence or layer their sounds to create compositions (AB or ABA), rounds, or call-and-response.
