Elementary Music

What we’re working on

 

Expected behavior helps us to be good learners! Our music rules are:

Make good choices
Use equipment properly
Speak when the time is right
Involve yourself in all activities
Cooperate with others

 

Kindergarten – we’re exploring our singing voices, learning how to keep a steady beat, and moving to music in fun ways.

1st Grade – we’re starting to match pitch when we sing, continuing to keep a steady beat, moving to music, and using our words to describe the music we hear.

2nd Grade – we’re getting really good at matching pitch when we sing, we can keep a steady beat with our bodies and with instruments, we’re learning to show the music we hear with our bodies, and using our words to describe the music we hear.

3rd Grade – we started the year learning about the instruments of the orchestra and now we’re working on learning to sing with solfege, reading rhythms, and connecting what we sing and play to written music.

4th and 5th Grade – we started the year learning about reading and notating music. Now that we have a beginning understanding of reading music, we’re working on playing recorders.
