Bucket Drumming!

At Boneo Primary, in 2014, we plan to play with buckets and sticks to make music. If you would like to join us in this experiment, you can! This online session is available free. It will be suitable for classes of students aged 8-12. I suggest one log in per class using a projector or whiteboard. We will be doing some bucket drumming, so you may want to give your students buckets and sticks, or be prepared for them to bang on their tables with their rulers or pencils!

Here are the details

Name: Bucket Drumming- Music Matters
Type: Connecting Students Globally
Starts: Feb 05, 2014 02:30 PM Eastern (EST, Australia/Victoria)
Ends: Feb 05, 2014 03:15 PM Eastern (EST, Australia/Victoria)

To join the session, please click on the link below within 30 minutes of the specified time. If you are unable to join in I plan to upload the recording after the session for anyone who may be interested.

iPad Orchestra

At Boneo PS this week we had the great excitement of a film crew filming our iPad orchestra. We spent the day playing music, being interviewed and filmed. We are proud of our iOrchestra and have discovered many ways to use iPads as musical instruments. We have shared our iPad Orchestra online with other schools and our students would be happy to share with your school too- just drop us a line in the comments. Thanks to Wendy,  Glenn and Charmaine for the amazing filming day. I will post the finished film when it is edited. If anyone else has an iOrchestra I would love to hear from you!

I have just made an interactive image in ThingLink. I uploaded the sounds to Sound Cloud and linked them to the image. I would love some feedback!
