News and Info from Music Class
Welcome back to all of our students and young music makers! I am glad to see and hear so many smiling faces and singing voices once again!
This year we will continue to use Orff instruments, including xylophones and glockenspiels! These instruments will be tools to teach your children technique for playing and to help them in improvising and creating their very own songs! They will also be part of the Orff Ensemble after-school group your students may choose to join. If interested in singing, students are also invited to join 5th and 6th Grade Chorus. More information on both ensembles will be sent out shortly.
Whether in music class or music ensembles, students are asked to bring a folder this school year to gather and keep music assignments and compositions. This music portfolio will give you and your children a chance to reflect on their work throughout the year and think critically as musicians.
All children—and all people—are musical in their own way. So, as the school year begins, I encourage you and your child to find something musical in the everyday!
