    ability and drive to be one of the best?

    focusing on ability, attitude and performance. Both of these elite
    elite music ensembles will be auditioning in September.

    Grade 3
    The three elements of music!
    An introduction to 'Rhythm', 'Melody' and 'Harmony',
    the elements that make music what it is!
    January brings Recorders! Each 3rd grader will need to purchase
    a quality three-piece recorder from me (around $4 a piece). Each
    student will play their OWN recorder, there will be NO sharing!
    They will need to be responsible for keeping track of it and bringing
    it to music class. After a few weeks of learning/practicing, could a
    performance be in their future?
    Grade 4
    Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Projects!
    You will be studying the history of early Rock and Roll,
    from 1954 through the early 1960's. During that time,
    you will be assigned a performer or group that has been
    inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Your project
    will include a report, pictures and your own art work
    which will be displayed in the music room at the end of
    the unit!  
    Grade 5

    A beginning of the year project that includes ALL
    aspects of music, including a short solo by you!

    Everyone will create a rap about something
    that you like or like to do, then create the
    cover art that would accompany your CD.
