My Project

My students are excited about making music! With multiple xylophones, students will be able to play together, and play different parts within the same class. They will learn about melody, harmony, reading music, and how parts are combined to create a layered sound. The bass bar will add depth and richness to the music they are playing.

Students will be amazed at the sounds they can make on these xylophones, and inspired to make music even more!

As budding musicians, instruments like these give them the encouragement they need to know that they can do it!
