  • What are we learning?

     

    5th Grade General Music: Welcome to Middle School Music! During our first unit we will be reviewing the basics of music that we learned in elementary schoool and learning how we're going to continue our musical growth. Topics we'll be covering include: "What is Music?," Rhythm, Pitch, Solfege, and simple folktunes. At the end of Unit 1, students will be prepared to move into playing the recorder and to investigate what band will look like in 6th-8th Grades!

    6th Grade Band: To start out this year, we will be doing a quick review of what we learned in 5th Grade Music: how to read beginning rhythms, pitch in treble and bass clefs, instrument families, and more. By the end of our first two weeks, students will be learning out to make their first sounds on the "fundamental parts" of their instrument, as well as learning how to put their instrument together.

    7th Grade Beginner Band: To start out this year, we will be doing a quick review of what we may have learned in elementary music: how to read beginning rhythms, pitch in treble and bass clefs, instrument families, and more. By the end of our first two weeks, students will be learning out to make their first sounds on the "fundamental parts" of their instrument, as well as learning how to put their instrument together.

    7th Grade Advanced Band: We will spend the beginning of this school year reviewing things that we learned at the end of last school year. Students will recieve their warm-ups, scale sheets, and All-County Audition music. We will quickly move into playing every day.

    8th Grade Band: We will spend the beginning of this school year reviewing things that we learned at the end of last school year. Students will recieve their warm-ups, scale sheets, and All-County Audition music. We will quickly move into playing every day.

    8th Grade Music Appreciation: To start out our Semester long exploration of music, students will be taking an interest inventory that will help shape what we study throughout our semester together. Students will have opportunites to study areas of music that align with their own personal interests in music.
