Making Music

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Cloverdale Elementary School recently hosted Malke Rosenfeld in a performance that included American old-time music, dance and songs. Students were introduced to percussive footwork, participatory songs, banjo and fiddle tunes, humor and straw instruments. The ensemble shape shifted from a quartet to duet, trio, solo and chorus. Students learn to understand a basic musical form and discover what it takes to find joy and satisfaction in playing music together. The PTO funded the Jan. 23 Visiting Artist Program through the proceeds of the school's fall fundraiser.
