Off To A Good Start
We started off our musical adventures learning about each other, singing, and learning some new dances. Some of the high lights are the Halloween songs we have learned over the past three weeks.
First and Second Grade
We have spent the past few weeks working on reading rhythmic notation, singing songs, and diving into folk dances. And yes... also having fun with Halloween themes as well.
Third and Fourth Grade
The third and fourth grade students have been busy with many things. In the music class they have been singing rounds, songs, and performing on instruments such as the xylophone, tone bells, drums, and shakers. They spent a few weeks learning how to play a folk song called Rocky Mountain and were able to perform it on the instruments. In chorus, we started to prepare for our upcoming winter concert. This is a wonderful group with some excellent vocalists, and we cannot wait for our upcoming concert.
Fourth grade students who are in band have also started to learn how to play their instruments. This is a long process, but one that I am already seeing pay off. The progress of most of our band students is commendable along with their dedication. The only issue I am seeing is students forgetting their instruments. Also, you can head over to the "Band Room" page for more information about what your son/daughter should be working on in band lessons with Mr. Meurs.

Enjoy a beautiful Halloween Night!
