Vocal Year 3s

Posted: April 24, 2015

The Y3s have just started their Vocal unit where they are learning about singing in rounds. Singing in rounds involves having three or more groups singing exactly the same melody in unison but with each group beginning at different times. A song as simple as, “Row, Row, Row Your Boat,” when sung in rounds, suddenly becomes very rich and harmonious. The students are doing a great job at keeping in time, keeping in tune and listening carefully to one another. We have also used percussion instruments to help keep the beat and add even more flavour to the compositions.
