Music Notes for April 24
From Mr. Anderson:
“First of all I would like to thank all of you for wonderful spring concerts. The children were wonderful, and your support is second to none! As the school year comes to a close we will be moving fast and/or slow into the expressive elements of music. Students will recognize different tempos and dynamic levels in music, as well as to understand different styles and genres of music. We will also listen to music and discuss culture of music from South America, Czechoslovakia, Mexico, Zaire, and music dating back to the roots of pop culture, rock-n-roll, rhythm and blues, ragtime and jazz. We will learn the format of 12 bar blues, and use classroom instruments to develop a deeper understanding of why and how composers will use tempo and dynamics in various genres to outline the mood and feeling of music.”
Thank you to everyone who attended the Elementary Concerts!
