What's Been Happening in Music?
Students in 4th grade played rhythms in duple meter along with popular songs from the radio to demonstrate their reading skills!

 Students from Randolph MA's MUSIC Dance.edu came and taught K-2 about the history of Hip Hop and R&B! Special thanks to the Franklin Cultural Council for funding this! (I wasn't able to be at the Parmenter performance so I don't have pictures but I was told fun was had by all!)

Students in 2nd grade learned how to create their own short repeating rhythm aka. ostinato to accompany "Old Dan Tucker" with instruments.

Mrs. Vaudrain's class has been coming once a week and playing many instruments! This week they chose the recorders! 

I'm loving this new batch of 3rd grade chorus students! Here they are demonstrating how to and not to stand in chorus. In other words, they are learning about singing posture!

Much better!:)

Stay tuned for more classes, grades, pictures and videos next month!
