This PowerPoint suggests how to introduce pen-drumming in the classroom with a view to allowing students to continue to experience practical music-making and develop rhythmic skills under current restraints (2020). It continues to look at how such activity can support other areas of learning in the class.
Strand: 2. Innovate and Ideate
Strand unit: 6. Design a Rhythmic / Melodic Ostinato
Suggestions for use: Pen-drumming is effective in encouraging confidence in group and individual music-making. It enables students to explore rhythms, ostinati, layering, dynamics, tempo, pulse and form. It allows students to look at ‘effects’ in music and encourages an awareness of balance and performance critiquing in students. It’s also great fun!
