Class Description:

In Early Elementary Music, students will be thoroughly engaged in “making a joyful noise!”

The class will focus on the fundamentals of music: rhythm, pitch, tempo and volume. We may even attempt to learn about the importance of a well-placed silence. (You’re welcome!)

Students will sing new songs, as well as old favorites, and will also learn Solfege (do-re-mi’s), Shape Notes, and Curwen hand signs. Students will be introduced to a variety of musical genres, and they will study a few pieces of classical music as they learn about the instrument families and strengthen their listening skills.

Gross motor skills will be exercised and strengthened through action songs, clapping, marching, and general exuberance.

Homework Requirements:

None
