Music expresses the joy inside a child's soul.
Meet Mrs. Kostreva
This summer my family spent a week in San Diego, California visiting my son who is stationed at Camp Pendleton Marine Base. I went parasailing, saw dolphins, sea lions and did lots of walking on the beach. I also spent a few days getting to know my brother's cows on his farm in Indiana. They sure are BIG!!! I am looking forward to another great year at Rose Glen.
Meet Mr. Falk
LEARNING IN SEPTEMBER
Essential Question: Why does a composer choose a specific tool/element when creating a piece music?
One of the tools musicians use is rhythm. For the first part of this trimester each grade level will be adding a new rhythm(s) to their repertoire of rhythms:
Grade one - quarter note (ta), beamed eighth notes (ti-ti)
Grade two - half note and half rest
Grade three - four sixteenths (tiri-tiri)
Grade four - eighth note followed by a quarter note followed by an eighth note (ti-ta - ti)
Grade five - eighth note followed by two sixteenth notes (ti-tiri)
