1st Grade Music ProgramTop of Page

First graders have music class twice a week for 43 min each and every other week they have an SEL/Music class for 43 minutes on Wednesdays. We explore melody, rhythm. form, expression, and improvisation through singing, dancing, and playing pitched and un-pitched musical instruments.  We also explore performance skills and managing performance anxiety through our spring concert.

Dear 1st Families:
Wow - what an amazing start to 1st grade music. The students have been very busy bees working hard to learn the songs & dances to the 1st Grader musical - "Pajama Party!"    Please help your kids work on memorizing their lines & lyrics to the songs!  I am so very proud of the way your beautiful kids are working together. We started this concert work with an SEL check in.  We talked about our excitement & anxiety around preparing a huge production.  We have worked every week on Performance Anxiety regulation techniques!  I have shared some of these in the Google Drive below.  Together we have set educational and emotional goals to provide all students with equal access to a safe environment to share their talents with each other & soon....with you!
