We have spent the last few weeks learning how to get along in our new music room with new classroom routines, expectations, new sit spots, new instruments, etc… The students have agreed to LEARN, MAKE FRIENDS and HAVE FUN in every music class this year. We have enjoyed singing, name games, tempo tag and several other music activities. We are off to a great start.
Welcome to our new music room. During the first week of school we have enjoyed using our gold circle on the floor, filling our 30 closet/cupboards with all kinds of music resources, grabbing our lesson instruments from our fancy instrument carts and showing off our 2 new ukulele carts. We love our new room.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Alward parents for supporting the purchase of 32 ukuleles with a unanimous vote for our Alward music department. Your vote will also include the purchase of a beautifully hand crafted wooden cart, 32 instrument bags and a tuner for daily ‘tune ups’. The ukulele will add great value to our room and musical experiences. We at Alward appreciate everything you do for our school and our little tigers. Thank you again. (We are so excited.)

Here is a practice video for the Twelve Days of Christmas! Try to see what kind of ideas you can get from this sample.
In November, all grades will continue to learn and practice more of their holiday program repertoire. During this month, students will also have the opportunity to audition for a variety of special parts and learn most of the choreography for each song. We are getting closer to our December 8th concert. How exciting!
Now that we have organized our classroom environment, secured our new seats and found our beautiful singing voices, it’s time to begin preparing for our Holiday program. October will be full of steady beat song/game experiences, melody singing high/low activities and Holiday rehearsal. Don’t worry! We will also squeeze in fall holiday songs, games and drama activities. Happy fall.
