  3. exploring texture in "Don't Worry Be Happy" using the online module: http://bobbymcferrin.com/dont-worry-be-happy-song/

  5. "Mooshika Vaahana" ms. 1-4 focusing on notes and text

  6. learning about gamakas ('ornaments') in classical Indian music

We also played a few different musical games, including:

Thank you, parents, for the conversations regarding the Autorickshaw projects! Please see my email from last week for details - feel free to let me know if you have any questions/concerns! :)
