Oak Hammock K-8 6th grade virtual band students’ final project for the year taps into their creativity and ingenuity. Students were asked to create their own musical instruments from household items such as jars, cups, bowls and pots. The students filled their items of choice with smaller objects to create different pitches, rhythms and dynamics. After participating in a lesson about various types of whales and their songs, students were asked to use their created instruments to emulate whale songs. The ESE Self-Contained students took special interest in this project as they were are having a great time creating their compositions together.
