Welcome to my teacher webpage!
I am looking forward to a new year of music making! You might be wondering what it will look like, so let me fill you in.
In music we:
Create & Compose
Learn to read music notes & rhythms
Listen to famous and not so famous works
Discover music from around the world
Use digital tools to create and explore musical concepts
And so much more!
Each student will have music one time each week as part of the Related Arts rotation. In addition, fourth and fifth grade students will be able to sign up for music club, where we will have some time for students to delve more deeply into musical ideas that interest them. Fifth grade students will perform a musical in the February and perform a song at their moving up ceremony. Third grade students will receive recorders and have a day where parents are invited in to music class to see them play. All students will be involved in Star-Spangled Banner day on September 14 - make it extra special by dressing in red, white & blue!
I will post the activities & slides that we use in class in Google Classroom. Check back often to see what is there!
I hope that your child will learn and grow musically this year, and I hope that you will have an active part in it. I look forward to seeing you at our back to school night, and remember, I am only an email away!
