The 1st grade students took part in a workshop with guest musician Terry Boyarsky. Using a varied repertoire of music and movement, Terry taught the 1st grade students listening skills, problem solving, team work and kinesthetic awareness. Students estimated measured and analyzed musical patterns and forms through rhythmic games, body percussion and song. They used spatial reasoning to connect musical forms with geometric figures.
Our students were able to Terry Boyarsky due to funding in part from Young Audiences (Center for Arts Inspired Learning). Additional grants were also received from The Nord Foundation and The Firelands Endowment Fund.
