Welcome to Mrs. K’s Music Room!
GES students have the opportunity to explore the world of music through many learning avenues! Every child is offered general music class on a rotating schedule, every other day. Students focus on core musical concepts and continue to review and reinforce these skills throughout their time here at GES. Beat, rhythm, pitch, music terminology, solfege singing, rhythm reading/writing skills and performance opportunities are all part of the GES general music experience. Students also have the opportunity to explore the world of the orchestra and its instruments,classical composers and their works, as well as many genres of music.
Activities that reinforce music concepts and address the National Music Standards are singing, expressive movement/dance, storytelling, dramatic play, purposeful listening, rudimentary vocal/instrumental improvisation, singing games, elementary dictation and sound exploration.
