It’s All About the Process:
Keetman’s Rhythmic Building Bricks and Beyond
Using the elemental rhythmic building bricks, we will explore improvisation and composition in the classroom. Diving into pieces and examples from the Music for Children volumes and supplements, as well as children’s literature, participants will learn how to play, improvise, create, and expand on them. Come ready to Sing, Dance, Play, Move, and CREATE!
