This week 3rd Graders will start their music classes for the year with an exploration of pitch in both the songs we sing in school and the music they hear outside of school. Meanwhile, composition and creativity will dominate the other grades. Second graders will perform their compositions, 1st Graders will explore tempo through modifying familiar tunes, and Kindergartners will blend music with science as they build a tree for the song "The Green Grass Grows All Around." Even the PreK students will get to improvise with vocal production of nonsense syllables for their friends to echo.
In addition to these creative goals, we are also introducing the music for the Winter show which we will continue to work on and rehearse in the coming weeks. Before we know it, winter will be upon us and we'll be up on that stage performing for all of you!
