During the month of October, students worked with various unpitched percussion instruments. Unpitched means that the instrument only has one distinct sound and can only play that sound. Students also worked on Xylophones; practicing mallet technique and steady beat. We also read a story about rhythm and different places on your body where you can keep the beat.
