Summer 2015 – Africa

Join us as we explore the music of Africa!

AATW-Africa-Map1Each class is 45 minutes long.  We start the class with the Hello Song, and then sing about more three songs seated on the floor.  This activity includes patting, clapping, hand motions, or rocking, rowing, swaying and wiggling.

Next we do an “up and around the room” song, where we fly, swim, bounce, hop, spin, tiptoe, run or dance around the room.  After this, we do about two songs using instruments such as drums, claves (sticks), shaker eggs or tambourines.

By now, it is time for a little free movement, so we get out the scarves and dance, twirl or play peek-a-boo while listening to authentic music from today’s focus country.  There is usually one or two more songs after scarves, often a lullaby to soften the mood and pace.

Next comes the “Experience.”  During the Experience, we learn a dance, or act out a custom or holiday celebration that comes from our focus country, while listening to traditional music.  We end class with a free “playalong,” where kids choose an instrument and play to music, followed by the Goodbye Song, and High 5’s all around.
