MAY 2019 – MUSIC GRADES 4-8 

Grades 4-6 will be having two extra rehearsals leading up to the May 7 7:00 p.m. Spring Concert.  Following the concert, all grades will begin the process of playing handbell music without highlighting their parts on the printed page.  This will require review of all the basics of note reading, as well as adding new concepts as needed.  We will start this process by ringing a straight-forward version of the spiritual We Are Climbing Jacob's Ladder .

Mission statement:

The goal of the general Music curriculum is to provide students with the skills they need to be active participants in music. Students will learn the fundamentals of music, basic music theory and history through an interactive program. Through the use of games, songs and movement activities, students will learn the skills they need to create their own music. Students will be encouraged to create their own music by contributing ideas for class vocal and instrumental pieces. Students will also learn the vocabulary needed to critique music from many different genres, cultures, and time periods. It is our hope to instill an appreciation and enjoyment for music that students will carry with them through all of elementary school, junior high and beyond
