Boomwhackers Lessons for Primary 2 and Primary 3 pupils
For 8 weeks, Primary 2 and Primary 3 pupils are learning Boomwhackers Instruments. Each of them will be playing a single note as a part of the C Major scale. They are playing various songs like "Lazy Pony", "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", "Chan Mali Chan", "Rasa Sayang", "Lightly Row" and many familiar tunes.
Besides helping pupils to develop musically, this instrument teaches pupil how to have teamwork. They need co-operation skills and listening skills in order to play the song well as a group. Pupils are also trained to be confident in performing as they are given opportunities to perform in front of the class as well as in the canteen during recess for Music@Recess Programme.
