What A Wonderful Jazzy World

The 1st graders have been studying jazz in music class; identifying jazz instruments and listening to jazz composers. We listened to Louis Armstrong sing “What A Wonderful World.” Both 1st grade classes colored their own Wonderful World pictures to go along with this famous song. View their video below.

Peter & the Wolf

Kindergarten has been learning that sometimes music makes a story better. In the story of Peter and the Wolf, each character has an instrument that plays when that character has a part of the story. They each chose their favorite character and matching instrument and drew them. Enjoy their artwork in the video below while listening to a small piece of the Prokofiev story.

Woody Guthrie

Who says learning about composers can’t be fun?!!? The 4th grade is learning about 3 American composers and first on their list is Woody Guthrie, a folk music composer that was born in Oklahoma. He has written many popular songs including This Land is My Land and Bling Blang. Enjoy the 4th grader’s boomwhacker video below.

Kindergarten Operas

The kindergarten classes recently finished learning about the musical art form of an opera. We recreated our own operas telling the story of the 3 Little Pigs with only singing, no talking, just like a real opera.
