The Grades students are enjoying the opportunity to sing, move, and play instruments in music class.
In the lower grades, they are learning solfeggiotto (think doe a deer from The Sound of Music).
In grades 3-7, we are adding the reading of staff notation. We utilize primary sources, such as folk songs from around the world for the literature they are learning.
First and second grade students are both learning to play pitched and unpitched percussion instruments with others, as well as individually.
Students in grades 3-7 are learning the basic techniques as well as playing ensemble music for violin, recorder, pitched and unpitched percussion, autoharp, dulcimer, and ukulele.
We are having fun and learning at the same time!
