Recently, students in the fifth-grade band at Hiawatha Elementary School have been expanding their musical knowledge by studying rhythmic values in music notation. As a part of the rhythm studies unit, students have discussed fractions and completed an assignment called “Rhythm Math,” in which they added note values to find the sum. Throughout the year, students will further explore rhythms through interactive lessons and activities.
