In June, we are finishing our recorder unit in Grades 3 to 6, where students are developing their technical skills and learning a variety of pieces on the instrument. Students in Kindergarten will be continuing to learn songs about Spring and Summer, as well as developing their rhythm reading skills. Students in grades 1 and 2 will be finishing a project where they are creating their own verses of a song, which we will put together to create a class song!

This year in our music classes, students were able to learn through singing a variety of songs, playing djembe drums, hand bells, xylophones and recorders. We had composition projects where students had the opportunity to apply their musical knowledge and skills in a creative way. We studied pieces of classical music to learn about the instruments and composers, and reflected on our feelings while listening to them. Students who joined choir and xylophone club prepared a fantastic selection of music and performed them during our school concerts. It has definitely been an exciting year of music at Olympic Heights School!

Additional skills: GarageBand skills (recording instruments, sound effects, loops, software instruments), create music that portrays a theme, respond through writing how a piece of music makes you feel and what musical elements you can hear, identify different instruments of the orchestra, learn about the historical context of music from different time period and longer forms of music (such as orchestral suites).
