    Music Gr. 7-9

    This month, we are studying world music. Please watch this video of two Balafon players from Mali. (It’s 9 minutes long, so you can just watch part of it.) As you watch, how would you describe the music? Does the Balafon remind you of other instruments you know?

    PowerPoint Presentations:

    For our Zoom class on Tuesday, the following students will be presenting their Favourite Musician PowerPoint: Gracie, Eli, Henry and Noah. Please note that I have shortened the number of presentations to four in order to finish within our class time. The next presentation date will be Jan 19 with Asher, Simon, Kiara and Anya. Thank you for your understanding!

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at aperlau@mtroyal.ca
