Course Description: This course is for the intermediate student who knows how to recognize notes on the Treble Clef, has a love for music and an eagerness to further their knowledge of reading and playing music. Children will learn how to play scales, recognize sharps and flats, advanced note values, such as the eighth and sixteenth notes, dynamics, tempos, articulations, and so much more. They will learn to find complex beats of a given piece of music by using their body to feel and keep the beat. Used in class will be BoomWhackers, handbells, handchimes and resonator bells.
Students will also have the opportunity to make some fun, homemade musical crafts. Ideally, these will be completed in class and taken home the same day.
There will be homework each week of worksheets, practicing beats, reading music, etc. Music cannot be learned in a one day a week setting, but can be learned and enjoyed with even a minimum of 10 minutes of practice every day or two. This can be done anywhere and does not have to be done in a formal setting. Practice should be fun!
My goal is to nurture the love of music your child has and take it to a new level of appreciating the technical part of music and turning it into an ability to make music as a group. It will be my joy and honor to teach your children what music is all about this school year.
