It has been fantastic to see so many smiling and enthusiastic students over the past few weeks ready to face new challenges and opportunities this semester. Term 3 promises to be a busy and exciting term in the music department!
In Prep, students will develop their skills in keeping a steady beat through singing, dancing and playing a variety of percussion instruments. They will explore creating and responding to high and low sounds and fast and slow music.
In Year 1 and Year 2, students will be developing their knowledge of beat and rhythm through a variety of ‘hands on’ practical music making activities and games. They will continue to develop their singing skills.
Year 3 students will be challenged to learn how to play the recorder. They will also study instruments in the orchestra and how to recognise the sound of individual instruments.
Year 4 students will be learning techniques to play the ukulele and will use these to play and sing along to a variety of music.
Year 5 will experience playing the guitar and keyboard. They will be learning to play chords to accompany a variety of songs in whole class music making.
Year 6 students will further develop their individual skills in instrumental playing by choosing an instrument that they wish to study. They will unite as a whole class to perform songs to an audience.
