Our intermediate grade levels start to focus on things in music that will help them put together various music facts that they've learned when they were in the primary grades. For the second year in a row, we will be exploring different styles of music with the Music Memory curriculum. It's going to be a fun year in Music! You'll get to see some of the fun things we do, including our 5th grade choir the "Singing Knights". Our 5th Grade Choir will be meeting on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:00, starting September 23rd.
Our main focus in the primary grades is to get a good foundation in music skills, like the steady beat vs. rhythm of the words. We'll spend a lot of time echoing rhythm patterns and tonal patterns, and we'll also move expressively to music. The goal in primary is for students to be "tuneful, beatful, and artful!"
"I would advise my young colleagues, the composers of symphonies, to drop in sometimes at the kindergarten, too. It is there that it is decided whether there will be anybody to understand their works in twenty years time." ~ Zoltan Kodaly
