First-graders use music with boomwhackers

Lotspeich first-graders learned the basics of tempo, sight-reading, and more while playing their own boomwhackers, a colorful percussion instrument students hit with their hands, or on the ground to emit a sound, during music teacher Robin Wilson’s class. Each student was given a different color, corresponding to a different note. Students were able to understand which notes should be played when as they learned to play Disney’s “The Skeleton Dance.”
