The 5th and 6th graders most favorite project is in the works - Ipad Composer Projects! Students will pair up and research a composer's biography, choose their favorite song, and describe why they enjoy that song. Both grades will be learning about classical, baroque, and romantic composers.

The 3rd and 4th graders will learn “D” this month on the recorder. They now know how to play B, A, G, and C. All students are able to play the songs in the book we’ve practiced in class up until page 13. Students will also be learning the Rondo theme with a fun activity called "Candy Rondo" (that of course involves candy)

1st and 2nd graders will continue practicing rhythm with the drums and begin to learn the notes on the staff with the boomwhackers. They will learn how to play “Twinkle Twinle Little Star” and “London bridge.”

Prek and K will begin to learn how to draw music notes and practice call and response on the drums and boom-whackers. They’ll even color their own boom-whacker sheets to write a song! As well as learn some new fun movement games.
