Grades 5 & 6 will have the possibility of two options in music this coming year. All electives will be a year long class, and not able to be repeated (if you take it in fifth grade, you cannot take it again in sixth grade). The classes will be combined with grades 5 & 6 working together.
MUSIC 5 & 6
This class would center on singing and the playing of classroom instruments such as the Ukulele and Percussion. The ensemble class will center on group performance technique, learning to sing with a confidence and proper "tone" and vocal health, learning to read music on the staff, and learning music from many different genres, styles and historically relevant music. This class would help ready you for joining the Choir, the Theatre, or a percussion or guitar ensemble when you enter High School.
This class would center on two different aspects of Music: History and Cultural relevance of music (American Roots, Classical Musical History) and the learning to read music for performance on classroom instruments such as: Percussion, Ukulele and the Silver Bells. This class would be geared for those who enjoy music, but are not necessarily interested in singing, or larger performances. It would help ready you to join certain classes at the High School level.
