Music PK-5 - Mandy Foster
Core Value for November
What's Happening iN THE MUSIC ROOM PK-3:
Music in the lower grades is meant to give them a foundation of being tune-ful, beat-ful, and art-ful. In all classes, Pre-K3-3rd grade, students participate in weekly meetings that consist of singing, chanting, dancing, listening, playing games and instruments, and age appropriate music literacy. We rarely sit in chairs due to the size of the room and nature of early childhood music education. Please send your kiddos who wear dresses and skirts to school with a pair of shorts underneath. This will save them (and myself) a good deal of embarrassment. Thank you!
In the 4th grade, students begin to read traditional music notation and apply that to an instrument. At the beginning of the year, students play recorder. During second semester, they learn to play ukulele.
