This year in 1st grade music, the students will learn about many musical elements that will help them develop critical thinking skills, practice team building and collaboration, and become independent thinkers.

 

The year will progress in the following order:

 

Form: The overall structure of a piece of music.

They will identify the form using various shapes such as circle and triangle.

 

Dynamics: The relative loudness of a piece of music. They will use dynamics to express themselves through the music we sing.

 

Culture:Music from different backgrounds. The students will be exposed to a variety of cultures and backgrounds using music. This helps the kids to connect on deeper levels and promotes understanding and acceptance.

 

Rhythm: A strong, regular, repeated pattern of movement or sound. We will spend ample time in this unit as it encompasses finding the beat, keeping the beat, composing, and performing.

 

Singing, Pitch, Solfege: We will be developing our singing voices, aural training, and begin to use solfege syllables (describes the musical scale using one-vowel-sound syllables that sing easier than the traditional 8-note scale names).

 

Instrument Families: Strings, Brass, Woodwinds, and Percussion. We will learn where each instrument belongs and why it belongs there.

 

This seems like a lot, but our kids in EHT are dedicated, bright, and great learners! I have no doubt that this year will be a great success!
