2015 Fall Music Website
Welcome back to GFS ! Our first goal for all lower school music classes is to prepare for Friendship Day with our friends from Frederick Douglass Christian School in Chester, PA. On October 8th, we will welcome our friends on campus for a morning of singing , games and fellowship. We all look forward to the annual event.
In kindergarten, first and second grades, students will learn/review music terminology about the elements of music and develop rhythmic reading skills at grade appropriate levels. Many enjoyable activities will enhance this knowledge as it is applied to playing rhythm instruments. The children will also be learning many songs for the upcoming seasonal holidays.
In 3rd, 4th and 5th grades, students will focus on reviewing instruments of the orchestra to prepare for our trip to the Kimmel Center in November. We will be learning about the composers and their music which will be performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra at this youth concert.
Of course, we will soon be practicing for our holiday concert in December and we hope to see you all there on December 17th!
We foster a welcoming environment of diversity, where all are valued and respected as unique individuals.
