Music News November 2015

Rhythm mastery is one of our music class goals this school year. In November, we will continue to practice rhythm patterns to develop confidence. In Kindergarten and First Grade, students will be maintaining a steady beat during games and musical movement exercises. They will learn basic notation for short & long sounds. Grades 2 & 3 will drill quarter & eighth note patterns and play them on a variety of hand-held percussion instruments. Grades 4 & 5 will be working with 16th note patterns. We will also be singing seasonal songs at all levels and many classes will be using our collection of xylophones to accompany our festive tunes.
