I do not have a whole lot to talk about right now, except that I am happy to be back with your children! In class, we are spending some time reviewing what we have done in the past to prepare for a whole lot of new learning over the year. Third and fourth grade students are reviewing rhythmic counting, singing songs, and have a fun little assignment where they have to find the rhythm in their name! The first and second grade students are doing similar things with rhythms, singing, and we also used the bucket drums! The kindergarten students are going through a period of musical exploration with their singing voices, and on instruments!
If you are interested in private music lessons for your child, take a look at the Music Resources page. I have a list of instructors in the area, along with a couple of studios that offer a variety of instrumental lessons. I will also be happy to answer questions you may have about private music lessons.
Lastly, feel free to follow me on Twitter. I randomly post things about whats going on in the classroom, music education advocacy, and the occasional meme about life as a musician/music teacher!
