Mwa Ha Ha

This week we are using BOOMWHACKERS for the first time!  They are loads of fun!!!

Here is a video of Mrs. V's 4th graders playing Mwa Ha Ha!  Mwa Ha Ha is an awesome song by Plank Road Publishing.  You can hear it and lots of other songs here!

Pipe Organ

I made this video several years ago because MANY of my students had never seen an organ!  This is my friend Julia Frost playing Little Prelude in C by Johann Sebastian Bach.  She also talks about how the organ works!
