Year 4 Australian Indigenous Music

Students in Year 4 have been exploring Indigenous Australian Music. They learned a traditional lullaby “Mumma  Warruno”, which is in 3/4 time, meaning that each bar of music consists of three crotchet beats.

Students formed small groups and devised body percussion patterns in 3/4 time. The aim was to perform these patterns in time with the beat of the music. Please enjoy some videos of their presentations:

Year 2 Conducting and Dynamics

This term, Year 2 students are learning about the “louds” and “softs” (dynamics) in music, in addition to exploring the role of the conductor.

During Music classes, they worked in groups to experiment with different conducting techniques and also following a conductor.
