Wow! We are already several weeks into school and it seems like we've just begun!
The music room is full of joyful noises once again and it is SO good to hear! We have been busy refreshing ourselves on rhythm, notes and counting as well as drumming, singing, and lots more!
We have begun practicing for the Veterans Day program and even will start on some Christmas music here shortly...how can that be???? Our tentative dates for the Veterans' Day program is Wed Nov 11 and the tentative date for the Christmas program is Mon Dec 7th. Be sure to mark your calendar now!
The upper junior high grades have been learning about musical eras, composers and genres. 3rd and 4th grade has really been focusing on note names and counting as we will soon be starting to play recorders. In 1st and 2nd grade we are learning lines and spaces, high and low, counting and note names. Kindergarten is involved in purposeful play where we are learning about going up and down on a scale, the different timbre of voices, steady beats, and doing a little body percussion, Hopefully you are hearing your kids talk about the fun we have in music each week.
"Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." Ephesian 5:19-20
