Music Update - Mrs. Murphy and Ms. Caulton
Week 3 Music with Mrs. Murphy
One week left until Spring Break! This week we will be exploring the traditional music of Japan through fun enrichment activities. Japanese music focuses on the art of combining vocal or instrumental sounds to convey emotional ideas, often reflecting nature through words or soundscapes.
We will also see and explore some traditional Japanese instruments. Traditional Japanese musical instruments include musical instruments used in the folk music of Japan. They include a range of string, wind, and percussion instruments.
To find this week’s materials, click on Mrs. Murphy’s Website, find your grade level, and scroll down!
Don’t forget, if you finish this week’s activities and want to keep exploring music, you can find many more enrichment activities for all grades on my website. This week I have updated my website with “unplugged” activities that can be done without the use of technology! You can also login to Quaver through Clever to access the Student Portal and explore countless music related games, compositions, and activities!
Week 3 Music with Ms. Caulton
Greetings Endeavour 2nd and 4th grade musicians: You are missed!
Theme for the week of April 6th:
DURATION, or, how long is that note going to last?
· A greeting from two very sleepy puppies (mine!)
· Quaver videos – wacky of course
· Can you act out durations faster than a speeding train? Probably not! But you just might be able to beat Quaver’s barbershop quartet. Send me a video!
· Dance to a Latin groove and compose your own dance music
- Choose from rock, country, hip-hop, blues & jazz tracks in QGroovesLite
· A video interface for you to communicate with ME
- Show off your singing, performing, acting or drawing skills. Or just say hi!
· 2nd: Favorite songs: “Blast off” and “Disco sensation”
· 4th: New animated recorder songs and some you know (pizza in the car, anyone?)
- Recorder Karate is ongoing – send videos! Belts when we return

The second video series is one I just heard about so wanted to pass along. The "I Survived" series is a popular one in the library so I wanted to let you know that "I Survived" author Lauren Tarshis is reading aloud one of her books, "I Survived: The Sinking of the Titanic".
