Music can teach us about how we live and about how others live. Music is a way to understand our cultural heritage as well as other past and present cultures. Music can certainly tell a story.
Encouraging our scouts to learn about Music is an important part about who we are and a good way to learn about this very expressive art form. The different types of instruments and the technical basic working of the wind, string, and percussion instruments were experienced. Recognizing and being exposed to differing genres of music such as blues, classical, bluegrass, opra, and jazz were played for listening and talked about. We all did a little singing to conclude the afternoon. I think we could hear some budding Pavarotti’s in the room!
GREAT JOB SCOUTS in earning this Music Merit Badge.
We hope you’re all “Jazzed-up” and always PREPARED to drum-up the scouting beats!
BIG Thank you to Mr. Jason for conducting this fun Music Merit Badge.
