Performing Arts News

Our Year 5 boys have begun their first Performing Arts unit discussing 'feels' in music and the musical elements that define different styles. They have also pondered why some people can relate to and favour certain feels over others. Using Valentine's Day as inspiration, we listened to Bob Marley's Is This Love and identified the important elements that define the reggae style, such as accents on the offbeats, a pronounced bass line and a slow rhythmic feel. The boys experimented with moving their bodies to match this feel before singing another reggae tune and some beat box-inspired word rhythms.
