Fifth Grade General Music
All students in 5th grade will have general music instruction as part of their "Expressive Arts," or "EA" rotations. Students will have EA three times per six day rotation (usually Days 1, 3, and 5 or Days 2, 4, and 6) and will have General Music, Art, STEAM Design, and FACS throughout the year, changing which EA they have with the beginning of each new nine week term.
Music in 5th grade will focus on elements of music such as melody, harmony, rhythm, tempo, and offer instruction on vocal, instrumental, movement, and ensemble skills. Students will be introduced to basic music technology skills through music notation software and Garage Band.
