Grade 4-5 will be prepared to develop literacy with tonal language. Students will explore further into how written symbols relate to the elements of music, and practice the skills to interpret and translate them into sounds. Our students will be introduced to various styles and kinds of music which will serve as a vehicle in experiencing the various elements of music through performing. Students will reinforce their musical knowledge through singing, playing instruments, listening and reading. Grade 4-5 will have many opportunities to display their talents and excel in musical performance, reading music and musical literature, and evaluating musical form with varying structures.
Grade 4-5 will use school-provided glockenspiel, rhythm sticks and sogo to learn the musical concepts such as notes, accidentals, harmony, intervals, different scales both major & minor and beats/rhythm patterns
Grade 4-5 will use their own recorder to explore woodwind and the techniques in phrasing and fingering.
