The word used to describe how loud or soft the music should go is called the Dynamics. I have three videos for you to watch:

  1. This video tells you the words and explains what they mean.

2) This video gives you the words and also plays the music in the dynamics that it explains.

3) This video is a song with the muppets (Bert and Ernie) singing loud and soft. I just had to give this to you to see… I loved the muppets and Sesame Street when I was your age!!!!

2nd Grade – 6th Grade

This week we are having the evaluation for the lessons in which we studied the different periods, and learned how to identify the styles of music in each period. Because of our distance learning situation, I will be giving you the answers, and you must grade yourself. I trust that you will not look at the answers before or during the evaluation. Also, this evaluation will be not be counted as a grade on your report card. 

Important: For the sake of your time, stress, and sanity, you do not have to listen to all of every piece of music. If you hear the beginning of the piece and you know the answer, fill it in and move on to the next question.

Finally, if you have time and you would like for me to know how you did on the evaluation, send me an email with your answers, I’d love to know how you did!!!!!!! Here’s my email address:

Elementary Music Lesson
Week 28
March 31, 2019/2020

All Students:

  1. I wanted to give you a monthly praise verse and song as we always do! It’s wonderful to memorize scripture, and taking time to praise the Lord will always lift your spirit when you need it! If you have it memorized when we get back to school on campus, you will earn a prize!!! Here it is…..

    “From the rising of the sun, to it’s going down, the Lord’s name is to be praised!”  (Psalm 113:3)–

2. Our new quarterly composer is Aaron Copland. He is a composer of the Contemporary Period (1900 – present time). Please listen to his famous piece called, “Billy the Kid.”

3. Also, the songs, “Armed Forces Salute,” and, “God Bless America,” are on this website if you would like to spend some time singing/practicing them.

Kindergarten and 1st Grade:

This week we are learning about the different musical terms (words) that are used to tell you how fast or slow to sing or play the song. 

The word used to describe how fast or slow the music should go is called the Tempo. I have two videos for you to watch:

  1. This video tells you the words and explains what they mean.
  • 2. This video gives you the words and also plays the music in the tempo or speed that it explains.

4th Grade Recorders: The song you were to practice for The Patriotic Program was, “When the Saints Go Marching In.” I expect you to learn it and practice it. You will play the piece for me in class by yourself for a grade. Also, there could still be a possibility that we will perform it.

You will receive a copy of it in the packets for next week.

2nd Grade – 6th Grade

This week we are continuing to review our lessons in which we studied the different periods and learned how to identify the styles of music in each period. Part two of the review is required this week, but if you want to continue reviewing part one, I will give you the entire worksheet and music. The evaluation will be next week, April 7, 2020.
