This year, your child will be participating in a music class designed to foster lifelong appreciation of music through active music making. The sequenced music instruction will help your child develop musical skills and understanding, using music of various styles from the United States and around the world. In addition to developing specific musical skills, your child’s studies in other areas will be enhanced by instruction that links concepts across the curriculum.
You can also reinforce your child’s music learning at home. Consider listening to music together and talking about it. Ask your child to share songs learned in music class. Attend local concerts to help foster appropriate audience behavior. These experiences will help make music meaningful at school, at home, and in the community.
Each grade level starting with their first-grade year will get a chance to present a music program to the student body and to their parents. Parents will get information regarding time and dates through our newsletter and e-mails.
Classroom grades are based on The National Standards for Music Education which includes: singing, performing, improvising, composing, reading and notating music, evaluating music, understanding relationships between music, and understanding music in relation to history and culture. The children also enhance music appreciation through folk dances during the school year.
If you ever have any questions about music class, concerts or grades, please give me a call or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to stop by and sit in on a music class, give me a call at 794-4181. On Fridays, we combine PE and Music. The kids love this day and so would you.
“Teach music and singing at school in such a way that it is not a torture but a joy for the pupil; instill a thirst for finer music in him, a thirst which will last for a lifetime.”
