The Canoe Song room 213

Yesterday room 213 finished and performed a composition using ostinatos (short repeated patterns). First they learned The Canoe Song, then we added a rhythmic ostinato on the drums. The next class we added two melodic ostinatos, one played on the recorder and another on xylophone. Finally we played all the parts together and sang the song! Here is a video of the result!
