6-8 Visual Musical Scores with Kathie Hsieh: Lesson 4

LIVE on Thursday, March 18th at 12:00pm

Program Description

Students will learn to make music with everyday objects like bowls, recycled cans, wooden spoons, and aluminum foil. They will learn to create a visual score, which depicts the movement of a musical abstract soundscape. In this lesson, students will use their original visual score to create a musical soundscape movement with the everyday objects that have collected. This module is all about open exploration, unique expression, and experimentation with sound as it touches on science and music standards.
