Yesterday the Grade 4/5 classes dusted off our boomwhackers for a little end of the week fun. Boomwhackers are a RAINBOW of colors and notes that lead students to a pot of musical gold. They are tuned plastic percussion tubes that vary in lengths according to their pitches. We play by (gently!) striking almost anything: a table, the floor, your thigh or hand, a shoe. They are not only WHACKY and fun – these instruments are therapeutic and accessible for all.
