Music in the Omidyar Neighborhood

Kindergartners and first graders are grooving to the beat in Amanda Lippert’s music classes. Instead of singing, students have been dancing, ringing bells and tapping out rhythms along to recorded songs, such as “If You’re Happy and You Know It.” Students are learning how to read quarter notes and eighth notes and love exploring all the percussion instruments inside their blue drawstring bags for the week of music classes.
