Xylo-Rhythms at Brown
Xylo-Rhythms is a 30-day instrumental music course for fourth and fifth grades featuring active, hands-on music making through the use of mallet percussion, keyboards, and drums. Students play two different instruments during the course: a xylophone and a marimba. The class meets every other day and students learn about beat, rhythm, melody, accompaniment, notation, and playing in an ensemble.
The District reviews, revises, and renews its curriculum at regular intervals and is currently in the process of revising the Music curriculum.
