Pre-kindergartners Enjoy Virtual Band Practice

Tyler McIlwraith’s pre-kindergarten class loves to make music! When students are in the classroom, McIlwraith said, they loved to build instruments from a variety of materials, including PVC pipes, blocks, and more. “When we were in the classroom together, I would turn on a song and let the kids all play along,” she said. “They called this band practice.” McIlwraith found a way for students to come together via Zoom for a new kind of band practice. “We decided to hold a virtual band practice and they each brought an instrument to our Zoom call,” McIlwraith said. “They had fun playing along to “I’m Still Standing” from the movie “Sing.””
