Meet Your Music Teacher!

This Week In Music Class...

Week of September 28 - October 2

In music this week, we will continue our work with STEADY BEAT and start to perform our steady beats using BODY PERCUSSION - using our own bodies as instruments by stomping, clapping, patting, and snapping.  We will also learn a new song about how "School's a Little Different This Year" using sign language.

 

Week of September 21-25

This week, students will continue to RESPOND to music through writing, drawing, and movement!  We will also begin studying one of the basic elements of music:  STEADY BEAT.  By using our bodies as instruments (clapping, patting, marching, snapping) we will FEEL the beat and incorporate it into fun activities like "A Ram Sam Sam", and "The Elephant Song".

 

Week of September 14-18

This week, students will continue to RESPOND to music through writing, drawing, and movement!  We will also begin studying one of the basic elements of music:  STEADY BEAT.  We will also CREATE a new verse to the popular children's song "The Wheels on the Bus".

 

 

Weeks of September 2-11

During these opening weeks, students will play musical 'getting to know you' games, and will begin RESPONDING to music.  We will also explore MOVEMENT in music.
