“Sagidi Sapopo” – A Game from the Philippines

After learning about this improvised body percussion/movement game from the Philippines during music class, 45 grade 4 and 5 students submitted videos of their own improvisations! The goal was to keep the beat steady through movement or sound, and to change the movement or sound every four beats. Thanks to those grade 4 and 5 students who helped us make music “together” even though we’re apart!

“If You’re Out There” Peace Day Community Song

In our virtual music classes this week, we are beginning to learn our Peace Day Community Song, “If You’re Out There” by John Legend. The performance of this song demonstrates artistic citizenship through the lens of coming together as a community and standing up for what is right. Click on the video below to practice the song for our upcoming Peace Day Assembly on September 15th. There are two red sections for the ES students, and three green sections that are for the whole ISB community. Enjoy!

“Mama Lama”: A Grade 4 Music Collaboration!

After learning this song during their Zoom music class, grade 4 musicians (and some teachers/principals!) submitted videos for this project. The song is performed in a rondo form (ABACA), with improvised body percussion performed in question/answer style in the B and C sections. Great job, musicians!
