The 6th graders have been working diligently on rhythms since coming back to school. They have reviewed note/rest values, time signatures, and are now getting into composition. We will spend a few weeks composing measures in small groups and playing a rhythmic dictation game before moving onto individual compositions! After performing their own compositions for the class on rhythm instruments, we'll wrap up our unit by watching Stomp! Check back for more information about upcoming units and concerts, as well as pictures of student work (and students working :-D )
6th grade will participate in one concert this year. It will take place on Thursday December 8th. Starting at 7:00 p.m. will be the 5th grade band and the 6th grade band. Following will be all 4-6 grade music classes performing a short winter musical! Details about arrival times and procedures will be emailed and/or sent home as it gets closer to the concert.
