Welcome to Music Education at Grandview Elementary where students will engage in various activities that foster their musical growth! Students will explore foundational musical concepts such as rhythm, melody, harmony, and dynamics. Through singing, they will develop their vocal skills, learn to match pitch, and eventually become confident in performing as part of a group. Students will also have the opportunity to play a variety of instruments, including recorders, ukuleles, Orff instruments like xylophones and metallophones, and even classroom percussion instruments. By experimenting with these instruments, students will discover different timbres and learn to create music with others. Finally, we will also work on our music literacy skills as students learn the basics of reading and writing music notation. Through Music Education we hope to foster creativity, a love for music, and enhanced cognitive and social development!
