MUSIC - Grades 6 -8

September 2022

This month, students will be introduced to basic music reading terms/concepts, such as staff, barline, measures, etc. We will also focus on learning proper singing technique and healthy vocal production. We will also familiarize ourselves with common Catholic hymns, so that we can be prepared to sing for Mass!

Looking ahead for the school year, we will plan a couple Handbell units as well as explore music of different cultures and backgrounds. Our goal is to encourage musical creativity and inspire lifelong musicianship!



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
