MUSIC EDUCATION CURRICULUM   

TEACHER: 
Mrs. Benson

I am looking forward to another wonderful year with the Hoover Rockets! Music classes will meet once a week for 45 minutes. We are currently using the Silver Burdette Music Connection Series. I have also added Music K-8 Magazine (Plank Road Publishing) as well as Activate Magazine (Lorenz Company) to enhance the music curriculum.
 

The following is a list of essential content

Develop good singing posture
Differentiate between singing and speaking voices
Sing core repetoire
Steady Beat

Move to music appropriately
Aurally recognize loud/soft + fast/slow
Develop music vocabulary
Begin using Solfege
Sing expressively
Identify music notation
Use and identify classroom instruments
Identify line and space notes
Identify various styles of musical compositions
Explore famous composers
Play recorder songs with notes G-A-B (4th grade)
Opinion based critique of various musical compositions (4th grade)
Identify orchestral instruments

In all of my classes there is a concentration on music and literacy. Learning to read and write is strongly connected to steady beat, crossing the midline and rhythm. I will use music- based lessons to enhance learning in the general classroom, as well as support NCA goals. These activities teach phonemic awareness, visualization, letter/sound identification, movement and specific writing-craft skills.
