The 8th grade general music classes are working to learn about music keyboarding through group lessons. The entire class plays along using mini keyboards to understand the basics of piano and other keyboard instruments. One at a time the students are able to come up to try their hands at a full-sized keyboard. Many have never used any kind of keyboard instrument before. They are learning note reading as they learn the positions on the keyboards. This activity will also ready them for the unit to follow which will introduce music software called Mixcraft to write songs using computers. More information on the keyboarding unit is HERE.
