Let the Music Play

May 6, 2020

Riverhead Middle School students are continuing to enhance their musical skills through distance learning techniques. Recently, the young musicians were tasked with teaching someone in their household how to play “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” on their instrument and film it.

The lesson gave the students an opportunity to show their family members just how much discipline is needed to learn an instrument. It also served as a bonding experience.

“My goal was to have students be reflective of their own playing and critically think about what they are doing when they play their instrument,” said music teacher Regan Burns. “After all, becoming the teacher brings on a new level of learning.”
