To teach a child an instrument without first giving him preparatory training and without developing singing, reading and dictating to the highest level along with the playing is to build upon sand.

At Memorial, we LEAD by being 

Responsible - Contribute to OUR creation of music. TRY YOUR BEST!

Respectful - We use OUR mouths and bodies for positive interactions.

Safe - Use equipment when given permission and as instructed. Follow the lead of your teacher.

In music class, students will be challenged by analyzing music with movement, listening, and visuals. We will experience reading and writing rhythmic, melodic, and standard musical notation. Singing and playing instruments are both highly encouraged!

Homework will only be given to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders while we are studying recorders. YouTube links will be provided on this website for students to practice with at home!
