Week 5 Rap work
Autumn Term Rap Project
We started by remembering what we had learned from the wonderful Mrs Philips in Year 4!
In week 2 we got to use the new bucket drums to create a rhythm. It was loud!
In week 3 we found this website. https://musiclab.chromeexperiments.com/rhythm/
We made the rhythm strong on 2 beats only. Can you tell from the screenshot if the strong beats are 1 and 3 or 2 and 4? Which beat emphasis would we use for a rap?
