The kids had a lot of fun learning about different types of music and dances of India. Shalini showed them different kinds of poses of dance. Introduced different Styles of Indian music.Showed slide show of different instruments of india. We had a special gues Maheetha Bhardwaj who presented slide show of Carnatic music.She also played the key board giving the class a live performance of Carnatic & hindustani music.
Class asked Maheetha questions.Children enjoyed the class very much.
March 5th:
Shubha (shalini's mom) discussed about different instruments with the kids and asked questions about the the instruments that they are learning. She played the violin and also showed the kids the different parts of violin and the famous violinists of India. The kids were very curious and it was amazing to see how much knowledge they have about music and instruments. Their observation is something we should probably give a standing ovation. They were so disciplined when it came to listening to what shubha had to talk about. 
After the violin, the kids enjoyed doing the Warli Art project. Warli art is an ancient art where in people used to draw pictures on the rocks with limestone. They were simple pictures with the basic shapes such as circles,triangles and squares etc. But yet they have so much value today. The kids drew them on a brown paper and they all have it in their bags. 
I hope i have given a fair idea of the things that were covered during the last 3 classes. Have a good rest of the week. Please see the homework section too for the next class.
