Hendrix: Fun With Music
Instructor: Mrs. Lindsay Hendrix
Grades: 1st – 6th Grades
Material Fee: $35.00
Supply Requirement: 1 folder with pockets and clasps, art supplies
Course Description: This course is for the beginner student who has a love for music and an eagerness to learn how to read and play music. We will learn note names, their locations on the staff, note & rest values, and so much more. Students will learn how to find the beat of a given piece of music by feeling the beat and clapping, snapping, and tapping their foot to keep the music’s beat. Used in class are handbells, hand chimes 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 many weeks ranging from worksheets to simply practicing beats and 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 from the comfort of the couch to the convenience of a vehicle, not merely 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.
