Each time we have music class we will learn: A song of the day Then WE WILL USE PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTS TO REINFORCE RHYTHM READING. Next, We will learn how to read music notation by singing and playing the recorder. Posture, breath support and tone quality will be the focus.
Finally, we will have the opportunity to create and share each other's music in a end of class concert.
This course is designed to prepare students for instrumental and vocal msuic study in middle school. Students who are studying music outside of the school classroom are always more than welcome to bring thier instrument / equipment and perform for their fellow students. It would be nice to have a week ahead heads up so i can make sure performers are scheduled into our class activities.
Recorders - Students will be provided with a recorder at the beginning of the school year. Part of the Activity fee goes toward paying for this. Recorders are not to go home and stay in locker when not in use. There is a $5 replacement fee if a recorder is lost or missing.
