6th Grade General Music
Sixth grade general music looks/ feels very different from an elementary setting. For one, we do not have musical performances. If we do any singing in class (it is very rare) it is done in a safe and fun environment. Personally, I love to sing (that's why I teach choir as well). If students miss the singing part of music, I'd welcome them into my choir program! For most students who enter music class, it is an elective they needed to fill. I take it upon myself to try to ignite the passion of music in all genres. We will focus on reviewing some music theory, how to read music, reading rhythms, playing rhythms, creating & understanding the fundamentals of music. Buckle up and welcome BACH.
Purpose: To build on the elementary foundation, create compositions, explore music history and performance.
Students will use Spiral Notebooks, Pencil
Student Evaluations: Project, Participation Based.
ALL ASSIGNMENTS ARE POSTED ON MICROSOFT TEAMS on a weekly basis!
