Arts in the Schools
ACHF Arts Education
Goals: 1) Students will build their own one stringed dulcimer and limberjack. 2) Students will be able to play a variety of songs solo and with a group in a performance on their dulcimer. 3) Students will be able to keep rhythm and beat with their limberjack dancing. 4) Students will learn different Scandinavian dances and perform them. 5) Students will be teachers as well as learners as they introduce their instruments to first graders, parents, and Senior Care Center residents. Students will do a pre-test and post-test after the initial exposure to the Science of Sound and dulcimer string presentation. Students will journal about the constructing of both instruments and the experience of teaching first graders and seniors about the dulcimer. Students will journal at the end of the residency and reflect on how they felt when they make others smile by giving the gift of music. The residency will also include a time to evaluate with the teachers and the artist.
