INFORMATION FROM OUR MUSIC MAN ~ MR. ALCAZAR
En música, los estudiantes de primer y segundo grado están consolidando conceptos básicos como el pulso, así como figuras sencillas del lenguaje musical (negras y corcheas) mediante la danza, el movimiento y las canciones de palmas. Tercer y cuarto grado están cantando cánones a dos y tres partes. Quinto grado está transfiriendo las canciones a los instrumentos (xilófonos, metalófonos y carillones) de modo que van a añadir una experiencia instrumental de diversas
canciones tradicionales de todo el mundo.
