The 2017-2018 school year was so much fun. The students performed wonderfully in class and in their concerts. We gained more than 20 guitars by taking advantage of the exciting opportunity to become a "Little Kids Rock" school.
In the 2018-2019 school year, I plan to increase the integration of keyboards and guitars into lessons with students in 3rd-5th grade. Though, the 4th grade students will be starting the year with an emphasis on playing the recorder. As always, the students in 3rd-5th grade will sing, dance and move in addition to playing instruments.
I have many fun lessons in store for grades K-2 as well! These young students will sing, move, dance and play percussion instruments. By the end of 2nd grade, the students will be sight singing melodies on a 3 line staff, reading and performing half notes, half rests, quarter notes, quarter rests and eighth notes.
There are also opportunities for all of our students to join music clubs. The KidsKeyz club is for students in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade. The Guitar Club and Piano Club are for students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. And, our most popular club, the chorus, is for 4th and 5th grade students.
See you soon! Mr. Duff
