A Peak into Music Class | September 2017

In September, the students met Ms. Lisa our music teacher, learned the rules for music, and how to use certain instruments.  The instruments we learned how to play were rhythm sticks, castanets, and maracas. The students also learned musical terms such as staccato, legato, allegro, andante, and adagio.

Singing hello to Allie the Allegator. Ms. Lisa has the students watch Allie’s mouth while they sing hello to her, so they know whe to start and end singing. This teaches them how to follow directions and how to sing together like a choir.
Using egg shakers to match the beat of the song.
Using maracas to make the sound of a train. The students marched in a circle like a train and had to listen when Ms. Lisa rang the bell and played the train whistle to know when to start and stop. The song played in defferent tempos as well, so the students practiced walking slowly, at a medium pace, and at a fast pace.
