This is the one-stop shop for all things going on in the music room! I'll post updates about what we're learning, share reminders about upcoming performances, and ensemble members can find practice resources under the appropriate tab.
Latest Music "Notes"
January 3rd, 2023
Happy New Year! We have had a wonderful first four months of this school year in the music room. We've danced, played, sung, created, explored, and learned so many new things. In case you missed the first-trimester newsletter, you can read it here. There's a few sneak peaks at the amazing things happening as well as an outline of concepts we've focused on this grading period.
Our fifth-grade orchestra continues to astound me with their progress in only 3 short months. From not even knowing how to hold their instruments at the beginning of October, they're now confidently reading sight music within the D major scale with bowing technique and will dive into multi-part repertoire shortly. We look forward to sharing our music with you at the Extravaganza concert in May.
Several people have asked about performances. They are coming back this year, finally! There are four music events planned for this spring ranging from a prehistoric dino adventure, a hoe-down on the farm, to a trip around the world with folk dancing. More information will be released as we get further into the spring term.
