Today we used the ‘music creator’ program on www.aviary.com to make some African drum beats. The class had to follow instructions to make their drum loops by listening to which line they were to use (eg “go to the 1st line, 5th line etc) and were then told how many beats they were allowed to put on the line. They had to count out the number of beats and put them wherever they liked on the line. We then stitched all the loops together to make this African drumming track – we hope you enjoy it!
This afternoon we listened to some African drumming music. We used some instruments to see if we could keep a steady rhythm on the drums and shakers – the results were pretty good considering this was our first attempt! We are going to be putting together a longer piece over the term so watch this space!
