Week 9

Students in 1st grade and 2nd grade are learning about Italian musical terms for dynamic expression. Students are practicing writing the short hand symbols for Forte, Piano, Mezzo Forte, and Mezzo Piano and creating visual representations of what these terms mean. These students then will perform songs and rhymes we have learned with dynamics and will come up with their own dynamics for the songs.

Students in 3rd through 5th grade are beginning to learn recorder technique. Students are singing pentatonic scales and learning the fingerings on recorder to play these scales. In the next unit, students will be learning to improve with their instruments as well as play songs and learn more about notation.
