Music education has many elements.
Classes are planned with instructional themes
in order to establish student understanding,
teacher expectations and beneficial practice routines:
The practice of singing gives students the opportunity
to internalize information and develop confident self-expression.
Learning to match pitches, balance dynamic levels,
pronounce words with accurate diction and
support sounds with sufficient air flow are all valuable skills! Students will have experiences with each level
as they are ready to receive and process
the meaning of each one.
The art of listening develops acute awareness
by focusing on hearing without distraction.
Younger students may notice how fast or slow a song moves (tempo) or how sounds
move up or down (pitch).
Older students quickly develop music vocabulary
to identify and describe instrumental sounds (timbre) and characteristic musical forms.
