Music classes are taught that we can learn through music in various ways. Many songs we sing contain concepts that are taught in the regular classroom. Students learn simple rhythm patterns and how to sing using those patterns. The younger students learn the difference between the speaking voice and the singing voice. All the students get the opportunity to use various instruments. Students also get plenty of movement as we integrate music with PE. Musical terms are also taught througout the year.
I work closely with the Intermediate music teacher to make sure that what we cover will help those students in the following years.
Music is made fun as we use games and movements to teach make sure that each student enjoys music in some form.
