4th grade also finished their unit on instrument families!

5th Grade began a unit that combines music listening experiences with Language Arts. We began our music journal by listening to a piece of music and writing about how it made us feel and why.

Grades 6 had an AWESOME time on Flex day in a Public speaking class with me and  using our Performance Skills to be great speakers.

Grade 7 is working on their Cultural Music project and creating a class Passport.
