Taking Off! Exploring Pitch

In Term 4 grades 1&2 students will be exploring pitch. Using body movement, voice and tuned percussion instruments, students will be looking at the role that pitch plays in music. The students will be engaging in a number of games and activities that will help students achieve a deeper understanding of how pitch works. The students will also be given an opportunity to explore pitch using Orff tuned percussion instruments. These musical experiences will take place as whole class ensembles.
