Monthly Musical Update - January

In Grade 6 music class, we are continuing to develop our skills with fingerstyle on the ukulele, which is playing individual notes on the instrument to create melodies.  We performed Ode to Joy, our homework from the winter break, and are moving forward with learning new notes and chords that will help us play songs such as Hound Dog and Amazing Grace from our Essential Elements of Ukulele workbook.

As a quick announcement, we are very excited for Talent Quest this term, and are looking forward to seeing all of the acts students are putting together.  The primary auditions will be held the week of January 29th-Feb 2nd in in the Music Room during lunchtime and after school. A schedule with specific times will be sent out next week.
