Sixth Grade Music will be an exciting opportunity for students to explore the basic elements of music. Rhythm, melody, timbre, harmony, form, and expressive qualities will be experienced through singing, playing classroom instruments, composing, moving, and analyzing. The Orff-Schulwerk curriculum will be taught using our new Orff Instruments (xylophones, metallophones, and glockenspiels). In addition, the students will learn to play the soprano recorder. At the conclusion of each semester, the students will participate in the Middle School Showcase or the Arts Gala.
