Welcome to Music!
Your child is taking part in a variety of activities in music class.
These are designed to help your child develop musical skill and to know and appreciate many different styles of music. Our goal is to build upon acquiring the basic ideas of melody, harmony, rhythm, form, style, and expression.
Singing activities include songs from our American folk tradition, songs from many different parts of the world, patriotic and holiday songs, and songs that are part of the music activities in which your child takes part. Your child will listen to music written in many styles and will play simple instruments. Movement and technology is also part of our program.
You can reinforce what your child is learning in the school music program in several ways. You can listen to music together and you can attend school and community concerts. You may also wish to take out recordings from the local libraries. Ask your child to tell you about some of the music class activities. In this way, music class can be extended into your home.
Please feel free to visit during Meet the Teacher night, or any of our scheduled conference times throughout the year. Your child's education is important to me. If you have any ideas, questions, or would like to volunteer time, please do not hesitate to contact me at:

I am looking forward to providing your children with a quality program again this year!
