Third grade music students are developing their music skills in Mr. Ron’s classroom with Boomwhackers!
What are they? Boomwhackers are tuned percussion tubes which make wonderful and unique instruments. They have already brought the joy of music to hundreds of thousands people. The majority of Boomwhackers are sold in the U.S., but they have also been shipped to Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, and of course Thailand.
The set of tubes we are using is the C Major Pentatonic Set, which consists of 6 notes: C’-D’-E’-G’-A’-C”. This set is great for people who are less familiar with music, as all the notes sound good together. As you can see, the kids love them!
