Ben Sellers

The Jolly RogersComment

Today Ben came to visit us and he is a music composer from Yorkshire.

First we played a rhythmic game where Ben made us use our bodies to make beats eg stamp stamp tap tap chest chest and clap. Once we had got the rhythm, we had to take away parts of the beat but keep going. So like we would take away the stamp then take away the tap then we would just do the clap part but the others would still have their beats we just didn't play them.

After that Ben showed us an app called "Loopseque" where we got to make our own different music then we got a choice to either play it for a video or play it with your own rap.
