Are you ready to rock?! Beit Anafim (“Branches” for 2nd and 3rd graders) is gearing up to drop the HOTTEST singles of 5779. In honor of Tu B’Shevat, we’re writing songs that are all about etzim (trees).
We started by exploring our instruments. We experimented to see the different ways we could use them to make a lot of different sounds. We tried to make some sounds that we hear in nature, like trees, crickets, rain, and birds.
Next, we got the songwriting juices flowing by thinking about all of things that we’re celebrating about etzim (trees) and coming up with sounds for those things.
Finally, it was time to compose. Anafimers snapped into their typical laser-focus as rhythms, vocals, and lyrics swirled together to emerge as ecstatic tunes serenading the etzim (trees).
We can’t wait to keep working on our songs!
