Fall Music Newsletter   

1 November 2018

Hello! My name is Miss Smith, and I am happy to be teaching music this school year at Sabillasville Elementary. I have been teaching music for 15 years. I live in Waynesboro with my husband and beagle Lulu. I started playing the euphonium (baby tuba) in 3rd grade. See you in music class!
 

Curriculum

During the first marking period in music, students have been studying improvisation. Improvisation is creating music without preparation. Musical improvisation involves imagination and creativity. In October, we began studying steady beat and rhythm.

 

Recorders :

Starting in December, Third, Fourth,  and Fifth graders will begin playing the recorder in music class. The recorder is a renaissance flute, a forerunner of the modern flute, clarinet, and saxophone. The small size and affordability make it a great tool for students to experience playing a melodic instrument. Recorders are provided to students by the school in Third grade. It is important for students to have their own recorder for sanitary reasons and to take home and practice. Students will also receive a folder and music packet to practice.
