Middle School Music Opportunities for
Rising 6th GradersThe middle school music teachers have compiled a website of instrument demonstrations and ensemble recordings to aid students who are interested in joining the band, orchestra, or chorus next school year. In the upcoming months (once students register and schedules are created), music teachers will be in contact with families about instrument 'fittings', rentals, and other pertinent information. We are excited to meet our new 6th graders!I am so glad we got to see the DSMS chorus perform! DSMS has also put together two fun band videos over the past few years to highlight instruments (and see former eagles!) and DMS has created one for orchestra. See below:
Online Music Learning
Let's keep rockin!
Our building is closed but the learning does not have to stop...nor does the fun! Please click on the links below for some fun musical ideas for your children. There will be a link for each grade level, one for musical experiments, and one for family games. Please be patient and check back as I am still creating the older grade levels. Students will need parental permission and oversight when using the YouTube links. (I am never sure what ads might come up and what song will come up next). Be creative, be thoughtful and most of all--have fun! I miss you guys!
Musical Experiments (all grades)
Welcome to MUSIC at the Farm!
Elementary music includes experience in singing, playing instruments, dance/movement, playing games, music literacy, listening skills, music history, working as a team and understanding the role of music in our society. My goal is to give students a solid foundation in music on which they can build in their musical futures in a fun, safe, creative setting. Music theory includes learning to read, write and play rhythms and pitch on various instruments and through singing.
Super Singers is a chorus that is open to all 4th and 5th grade students. We work on singing and choral skills. Instrumental Ensemble is open to 5th grade students by audition. We play xylophones, recorders, drums and various percussion instruments. Look for information coming out in September.
Each month, individual grade level music activities will be in the school newsletter. So if you would like to know what your children are learning in music, check it out!
