Our arrangement inspired by "Drum Dream Girl" is coming together nicely! Both classes have been working on it for 2-3 class periods so far. Here, you can see an entire class working to put six different musical parts together into one beautiful piece. They are playing xylophone, glockenspiel, maracas, guiro, and drum. One student said, "It's a vibe!" and they were right! Working in this way allows students to practice their ensemble skills. This requires a specific kind of critical listening and aural awareness of the parts happening all around them.
