5th grade percussion ensemble

This is a preview of our 5th grade band members who already play a wind instrument (flute, clarinet, sax, trumpet, trombone) to try the percussion instruments. We wrote this piece together and not only is it in triple meter(not as popular as Duple and grouped in beats of 3’s), but it’s the most complicated rhythms I’ve ever taught in Burlington. To make it that much harder, they even split the rhythm between players. Check it out.
