percussionToday was a fascinating day at UT Martin. I attended a writing workshop that infused the methods of music. The Caixa Percussion Trio came and demonstrated some awesome percussion pieces for us to hear. Who knew that 3 women could make some fabulous noise!The whole day evolved around writing and music. As a group we got to experiment with the different instruments. Caixa showed us many techniques that we can incorporate in our everyday classrooms. You don’t have to have expensive instruments ( who knew that dog toys could be instruments!) to make music. Many teachers presented various lessons that all teachers could use in their classrooms. I am now ready to start the school year off to a musical start!
