Greetings from the Music Program

By Marcus Cooper, Music Teacher

It has been an exciting year in Music! We have been learning the musical elements: melody, harmony, rhythm and timbre, as well as practicing instruments in our classroom.

In Lower School, we have been creating the foundation to understanding music: singing diatonic scales (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do) and performing them on classroom bells, learning how to listen to music and allowing students to put their musical ideas into practice through Garageband composition projects.

In Middle School, our two explorations have been rocking! In “Music Technology”, students are learning how to use basic recording software and will soon build their own short song portfolio by performing live sound recordings on synthesizers and MIDI instruments. In “A cappella”, students have focused on practicing proper vocal techniques and, as we fight through nervousness, beautiful voices emerge!

It is been such a wonderful experience working with each and every student! I look forward to the continued growth of our music program and the many exciting performances to come!
