Telling Stories with Music
Telling Stories with Music
Posted on 10/25/2017

Music can tell a story! Check out these second graders in music class playing instruments along with the song "Abiyoyo".  The story song is based on a South African Folktale about a giant, retold and sung by Pete Seeger and illustrated by Michael Hays. We watched the story clip from "Reading Rainbow" and listened to Pete play his banjo! Did you know that the banjo originated in Africa along with the wooden xylophone (marimba)?Students in K, 1st and 2nd grade each took a turn on the xylophone during music class with Mrs. Allison!
