Anne Gray is our music teacher.

Welcome to Music!!  March-June


In Music classes, students in grade one and two continue to learn new rhythmic patterns (quarter note, eighth note, sixteenth note, quarter rest) and simple songs for reinforcement.  They are encouraged to use their best singing voices and to match pitch with the teacher and with one another.  Sol feggio syllables (do, re, mi, etc.) will be introduced along with corresponding hand signs.  Grade ones will continue to learn new music and movement games to reinforce concepts taught in class and build singing confidence.

Grade 3, 4 and 5 students will continue preparation on the Spring musical, "A New Day" . This musical celebrates mindfulness and the joy of living in the moment.  There will be many songs and much choreography to learn and polish as the process unwinds.  The musical is an opportunity for students to synthesize previous learning of musical skills such as group and solo singing, movement and the performance of rhythms and intervals.   Grade 5 students will have the opportunity to audition for spoken parts, sung solos and dance solos.  The musical will debut on April 8, 2020.

Following the spring musical, grade three students will prepare for Que Pasa, our annual musical celebration of Spanish language and culture, held a the Jubilee auditorium on May 11.  Grade four and five students will begin a recorder unit to last until June.  


Choir and Handbells...

With the cancellation of Choralfest, the grade 4/5 choir will prepare for its final performance in collaboration with the Savridi Singers on May 23.  Rehearsals for this performance will be announced after the spring musical (April 8).  

The Second Semester Hand Bell group will continue to rehearse every Tuesday in preparation for two spring performances: The Volunteer Tea on May 20 and another performance to be determined. 


Discussion Questions...

What new songs have you learned?  Will you sing the new songs?  Which rhythms can you clap?  How do you show the beat while you are singing a song?  Can you share any new music games?
