Monthly Musical Update

Dear Parents,

Grade 6 has had a great start to the year in Music Class. We divided our class into four teams based on the famous musical composers Antonio Vivaldi, Sergei Prokofiev, Germaine Tailleferre, and Ray Charles, then did some research to learn more about them. The students were also excited to start learning about the ukulele.  So far we’ve found out about where it came from, all of the parts of the instrument, and how to keep our own ukuleles in tune. 

Thank you very much for your willingness to support your students in purchasing their instruments.  Now that everyone has gotten a ukulele, we will begin learning to play.

Musically yours,

Ms. Shay
