Dr. Heller shared some of the activities that have been happening in the music room this quarter. Our second graders completed a unit where they learned how various musical instruments are used to represent the animals portrayed in Prokofiev’s Carnival of the Animals. The third grade students are learning to recognize melodies that represent each character in Peter and the Wolf. Students in the fourth grade are learning about the notes on the treble staff in preparation for their recorder unit. Students in the fifth grade are learning conducting patterns in duple and triple meter. The sixth grade completed their unit on bucket drumming and are looking forward to beginning the guitar unit.
