Carloyn Goodman’s general music classes have completed a “STOMP” project inspired by fourth grader Isabella Madden’s research project. She researched the off-Broadway show “STOMP,” explained what it was about and showed some videos from it. Classes then explored the different sounds that ordinary objects make when they're used as musical instruments, like cups, notebooks, water bottles, pens and pencils. Isabella conducted the piece for her class, pointing to each row to tell them when to start and stop playing. They did a "layered" performance; each row was assigned a rhythm and was told when to start and stop. They also did a “freestyle” with each student playing any rhythm at any time.
