A Peek into our Music class | September 2018

 

Welcome to the music blogpost! So far this school year your kiddos have been taught by Ms. Lisa, the musical instructor who teaches music at both campuses for AMMS.

   

The children have been taught many musical concepts over the past several weeks such as how to sing piano (soft), forte (loud), staccato (jumpy) and legato (smooth). They learned about how to “echo” Ms. Lisa and her puppet that she brings each week. Your children have played rhythm sticks, tambourines and castanets.  They learned how to follow a direction and play their instruments together. We learned what an instrumental is and played one on our castanets.  They also recently learned a Spanish song and dance called La Raspa. The children have learned how to wait for the right moment to pick up their instruments to play them along with the music. They have had a lot of fun so far in music this year!
