Welcome Back to Music!

Ready for another great year of music here at J.B. Fisher?

What's going on in the music room?

Two great places to keep in touch are Edmodo.com and the Music Blog. Edmodo is a great spot to keep in touch with Mrs. Beekman, keep up with grades and assignments like homework, quizzes, or projects. Check the blog to find dates and dress codes for upcoming concerts, song lyrics, links to fun music sites and more!

Composers of the Month

As the returning students know, we study a different composer (or person who writes music) each month. Each week, we will listen to a different piece of music by the composer and learn something about him/her/them. Last year, a parent came up with the great idea of playing a quiet piece by the month's composer as her children get ready for bed. I'd like to encourage all of our Fisher families to try it out! Keep this list on the fridge to keep track of who the students will study each month. This year's composers will be:

September: Bela Bartok

October: Camille Saint-Saens

November: Aaron Copland

December: Piotr Tchaikovsky

January: George Frederic Handel

February: Samuel Coleridge-Taylor

March: Johann Sebastian Bach

April: Ludwig van Beethoven

May: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

June: Richard Rodgers
