Hi Parents. Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. This year our 3rd-5th grade students will be playing recorder. Our recorder class will begin on Monday, August 20th. I am asking that all students begin bringing their recorders to on this day. Recorders can be purchased at local music stores such as Kirkwoods, Jays Music, Portman's Music, and Center Stage Music. These instruments can also be purchased online at walmart.com, amazon.com, and several other online stores. The price varies between $5.00 and up. This is a REQUIREMENT for this school year. If you have any issues that you would like to speak to me about in regards to recorders, please contact me during business hours at (706) 772-6240 ext 2032.
Thanks so much!!!
This year, our school is focusing on TRAILBLAZER PRIDE! We will be instilling in our students the importance of being Prepared and Respectful while demonstrating Integrity, Dependability, and Excellence. This is something that we want all of our students to follow in every area in our school, including the music room. Please team up with us to ensure that Deer Chase Elementary remains one of the best, safest, and orderly schools in our district.
Welcome to the 2018-2019 Academic School Year. I’m glad that you all are back and I hope you are ready for the new and exciting things that are happening at Deer Chase!
It is my goal this year to make an IMPACT in the lives of each student that enters the music room. I will be INNOVATIVE in my teaching styles. I will be MOTIVATING to my students and not discouraging. I will be PASSIONATE about my content and delivery. I will be AFFECTIONATE to the needs of my students. I will be CONSISTENT with student procedures and discipline, and I will build TRUST through my relationships with the students.
This Elementary music curriculum consists of Ten Goals:
- Students will sing appropriately with head voice.
- Students will perform on pitched and non-pitched instruments.
- Students will read and notate music.
- Students will improvise melodies.
- Students will compose melodies.
- Students will listen and describe music.
- Students will evaluate music performances.
- Students will understand relationships between music and other areas.
- Students will understand music in relation to history and culture.
- Students will move alone or with others.
In addition to music, Deer Chase will be having a bucket drum corp which fosters students’ creativity on a rhythm instrument. This club is open to students in grades 3rd-5th. Please look out for flyers about this group. I’m looking forward to teaching all of your babies this year. I wish you all a wonderful school year!
