Hooray! This project is fully funded
We are a new magnet school! Our International Baccalaureate school joins three others in our district. Families choose this type of school because we encourage inquiry and questioning of how things work and why. This IB philosophy greatly values and reinforces the arts. Students in K-5 have general music twice a week.
All of my classes allow students to be energetic and playful, thoughtful and inquiring.
Students are open to many genres of music from around the world and throughout history. We learn about music by singing, playing, dancing, creating, and improvising! I use an Orff instrumentarium (xylophones, glockenspiels, metallophones) to play a wide variety of songs and pieces. We also play ukuleles, recorders, and drums!
There's nothing like learning from classic examples of music! But to get BOTH classic and current music in one publication, is the perfect mix. Music Express Magazine and Music K-8 magazine offer music examples to hear, sing, play, and dance. Musical selections in them range from classical (Beethoven, Mozart inspired) to classic (Motown, jazz) to current (Pentatonix, Star Wars).
World music is there too, representing every continent on our planet.
Historic/Holiday events are also represented with music for Veteran's Day, Black History Month, and many other world celebrations. Many music pedagogies are also used, including Orff and Kodaly. There are even instrumental pieces to play for recorder, boomwhackers, and ukulele.
Our current textbook resources are more than ten years old. These resources will bring the musical world, old and new, into our classroom in print and digital forms. My students will have access to many more musical examples, expanding their repertoire and experiences.
