Music in October


Hello!

Welcome to music in the second quarter! I hope your fall break was refreshing and joyful. Thank you, those of you who came in to speak with the specialists for conference time. We love to tell how wonderful and special your kiddos are.

In music, all our grades are getting ready for the WINTER CONCERT by memorizing music and practicing how we act on stage. We call our standing position “Musician Stance”. This important posture helps the students breathe properly to support their sound as well as helps them focus and train their eyes to watch the conductor. We also take time to learn what is to be a great audience member. As a great audience member, we stay seated in our chair during the performance keeping our bodies silent (including our voices) and we keep our eyes on the performer.
