We've Got the Beat! Namaste Elementary Classrooms Visit Ithaca College on a Music Field Trip

We are so lucky to have our school right on the TCAT Bus Route--with public transportation field trips are a breeze! We've got the bus schedules mastered, including downtown transfers.
A bit of silliness in the elevator on the way up to the recording studio.
 Namaste students recorded an album of some of the songs they have been working on in throughout the year. Working in a real sound studio is a wonderful experience. I can't wait to listen to those beautiful voices in the car on my way to work. Copies will be available soon.

Listening to IC Choral Group rehearse for a spring performance

 A break in the hallways between activities for some food and discussion.  So this is what it's like to be a college student.
 Some outside time to release some energy and enjoy the beautiful day.

 The percussion room is awesome! IC students play a selection on the marimas.
 And when we thought the day couldn't get any better .....
The Ithaca College Instrument Petting Zoo!

A huge thank you to Jennifer Birnbaum, our music teacher, for planning such a wonderful firld trip for our classrooms and to everyone at IC for making us feel so welcome.
