Week 10

3rd through 5th grade students are beginning to learn recorder this week. We are starting with wind technique, long-tones, breathing and embouchure and learning the fingerings for a pentatonic scale in C major. Students will soon be using the notes in this scale to learn songs and improvise melodies.

1st and 2nd graders are continuing with dynamics and expression. We are learning about how different dynamic decisions in musical compositions effect the artistic out come. Students are singing their current repertoire now with dynamics and expression. To reinforce the understanding, students are learning about conducting and how to represent musical expression through body motion in rhythm.
