Yesterday, overlooking the Women's March at Columbus Circle, seven WHEELS students performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center as part of the Middle School Jazz Academy. They played a range of jazz standards including "Work Song," "Blues By Five," "Limbo Jazz" and "Una Mas," and everyone improvised solos!

Thank you to the amazing percussionist, Annette Aguilar, for working on Latin rhythms with our band students! They learned about the importance of listening and hearing rhythmic subdivisions and accents played by percussion instruments like maracas, güiros, bells, bongos and congas.
Sixth grade music students collaborated with second grade music students to build musical instruments from recycled materials like boxes, bottles, cups, cans and rubber bands. Students are learning about how instruments make sound and how they can reuse materials in creative ways to reduce waste!
