Welcome to music at Woodlin! All children are having opportunities to sing, move to the music and interact with instruments as part of their music education. Along the way, children are being exposed to a variety of musical styles including patriotic, Native American, African American, European, Appalachian, and Latin.
Third graders are preparing for
their first evening music concert on Thursday, April 12, 2018. Look for
them to play their recorders on such favorites as “Hot Cross Buns,” and “Old
MacDonald.” We are also learning some simple movements to America the
Beautiful and have started working on Consider Yourself from the musical, Oliver.
Kindergarteners are continuing
to play music games during their music classes and starting more formal efforts
at reading music. They are encouraged to consider ways in which symbol
and sound go together. They are also responding to musical opposites such
as loud/soft, short/long, and fast/slow. They respond with their
movements and their voices.
